In order to get past all the little things that annoy me about my father, I invite him to bond with me over over some manly German food at Hallo Berlin for Father’s Day.
Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
I’ve always been of the mindset that a basket of bread should be included with your meal. Unless, of course, you’re eating at an Asian restaurant. But certainly at an Italian restaurant, some warm (or lukewarm – I’m not that picky) bread and butter (or olive oil is even better) should come with dinner.
As of late, New York restaurants have become more comfortable with charging for their bread basket. And I’m getting more frustrated with ponying up the cash for something that should be free. For instance, Il Buco Alimentari has some amazing bread with even more amazing olive oil, but it costs $1 per person. Sure, it’s just a dollar, but it’s the principle. And last time we went, the waiter brought the bread over automatically (without us ordering) and STILL charged us a dollar!!
