Catch Roof

This Meatpacking District in West Village is pretty good. Food I’d give it 4.5, decor 3 and service 3.5. Bathroom is clean, bit too dark tho. The waiting staff could wash their uniform more often.

I’m most impressed by their mussels: not a single sand. The last time I had clean mussels was at an Italian restaurant on Bleecker Street in 1990s. The Branzino is very yummy, the Crispy Shrimp is bit too sweet but the texture is super.

Fake monks in New York

They’re everywhere … at the Hing Line Park & elsewhere.

As soon as I walk up to the park from Gansevoort Street, I see this new addition at the park: warning not to give money to fake monks.
