B&H


A new favorite restaurant of mine is B&H. Not B&H Photo, rather B&H Dairy, a tiny Jewish vegetarian diner located in Manhattan between 7th Street and St. Marks on 2nd Ave. I made my first trip there when I was killing time with a number of friends as we waited to head up to the Ziegfeld to see a midnight screening of Casino Royale. I had read about B&H online and when there was talk in the group of being hungry I insisted that we stop there and try it out. Despite skepticism from one or two people everyone agreed to go. A few minutes later we arrived and shuffled into the narrow space -- filling nearly half of the chairs and stools available. Menus and water were doled out. As I took a sip from my water glass I leaned back and studied what was on offer. Many appealing options presented themselves. I considered several soups of the day, potato pierogis, and the grilled cheese sandwich, but in the end I couldn't pass up the feta omelet -- a steal, I hoped -- at a mere $4.10.

A few minutes later my food was passed over the counter to me. Besides the omelet itself there were two slices of buttered challah and an enormous portion of home fries. The omelet was flavorful and featured plenty of cheese. The bread was crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. It tasted sort of like a challah/sourdough hybrid, which I found quite delicious. The home fries had large chunks of onions and peppers in them and were so good that I had to forgo ketchup, despite my intense love and overuse of the condiment.

As I ate I looked around at what everyone else got. A bearded friend of mine was enjoying four cheese pierogis, while another friend munched contentedly at a large plate of sauteed vegetables on a bed of brown rice. Everyone seemed to be satisfied with their order. I know I was. I still picked at the tempting remains of my home fries long after I was full from my generously portioned meal. As I left the B&H I smiled. I could add another place to the short list of restaurants that I love.

I was indeed very satisfied with my sauteed vegetables, and as I have opined offline the bread is excellent (I would and have considered ordering soup simply as means of enjoying the bread). I'd like to add that the grilled cheese is the best I've had in New York, and is priced to eat at 3.50.

Sounds delicious.

Is there a Thanksgiving dinner report that we can look forward to?

The best thing at B&H - no joke - is just the bread and butter, which is, dare I say, sumptuous. And it costs just over a dollar, making it one of the best cheap meals in the city. A+s all around.
