Just a Thought

What you look for in a greasy spoon is not cookery. There is nothing la-di-da on the premises. The food is plain; that’s the deal. The menu is unchanging. But in Manhattan, where you are assaulted hourly by unhinged ingenuity, especially in eating places, plainness becomes an attraction.

    How funny. One of my favorite close-by neighborhood hangouts is a greasy spoon near my house. That’s definitely its draw. It also feels like it is straight out of another timezone — like 1975, for example. But it’s where I love to go when I want a pal to eat greasy nasty food and just listen to me cry about the latest frustration, gossip, or boy troubles.

    However, it’s nice to have a choice when one doesn’t want the greasy spoon… luckily I have some!
