We were seated immediately at the requested booth and the service was excellent through out our visit. Although we were tempted by the specialty Guacamole, we passed knowing that the Quesadillas I was about to order would come with some. YUMMY. I went with the Steak in my Quesadillas and was very satisfied with my choice.
Hubby went with Pelona Steak Sandwich served with sweet potato fries and didn't leave a morsel.
The place was so neat with the divers on the wet stair wall that I felt compelled to walk around and look upstairs.
This is definitely a place to recommend and return to.
Meanwhile if you are in the city and have an hour to spare you might want to go up to Lincoln Center and visit the exhibit at the library. You will get a bonus view of a photo exhibit of early Beatles images.

A visit to the eye doctor today suggested I had dry eye and I was given these samples
to lubricate my eyes.
Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface, and is vital for all known forms of life.
The amount of water in the human body ranges from 50-75%.
Water is in the food you eat.
As per the Mayo Clinic, if you drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and produce 1.5 liters (6.3 cups) or more of colorless or light yellow urine a day, your fluid intake is probably adequate.
Here in Washington Crossing we have well water so it is basically free.
Bottled water....or water in plastic containers can be purchased fairly inexpensively...a quick Google search finds you can pick up a case of Nestle Pure Life Purified water at Office Depot for $4.99
or for 10.97 Gorilla Office Supplies will sell you a case of Nestle Poland Spring Water for $10.97
I'm not up to the extensive research that would be required to tell you how much ENERGY and OIL goes into making the plastic containers that ultimately end up recycled or in the garbage or floating down the river due to some inconsiderate.......
Nor will I bore you with the facts about the amount of money being made by this industry. Surely you know by know that there really is nothing too special, besides convenience, inside those plastic bottles you are buying.
What I will tell you is that it only takes a little Common Cents to know that by purchasing one or two stainless steel water containers, again a simple and quick search on Google reveals that you can purchase a 40 oz stainless steel water jug for $11.40 from the First Aid Store, and getting your water from a safe tap, is good for your wallet, good for the environment, and good for your health.
Drink water when you are thirsty. It only takes Common Cents.

We were shown to a table in an empty room which did not stay empty long.
Accompanied by my nephew, we started off by sharing an antipasta board (that's how it was spelled on their menu) which had several different Italian meats, roasted red pepper, marinated artichoke, a house made mozzarella, a hard cheese from a local farm and some wood fired pita to pile it all up on. Drizzled with balsamic it was delicious. It was plated up as a feast for the eyes with some of the meat rolled up like a rose blossom.
Even though I was satisfied with that, when nephew ordered the Wood Fired Flat Bread Italian Sausage, I could not control my temptation to try the Hummus. It was a delightful selection announced by the waitress of Curry, Black Bean and traditional Hummus with sliced fresh red peppers and shaved carrot curls. This was also served with Wood Fired Pita. My first nibble of the Curry required that I eat it all immediately. When finished I was finally able to control my self. I asked for a box and wrapped the rest up along with a few slices of the Italian Sausage on Flat Bread that even my strapping nephew could not finish.

OH the BEER. Well I'm on a diet so I didn't even try any but Nephew must have enjoyed his because he ordered another.
The owners were friendly and accommodating. Our waitress Ava was very attentive. Parking in rear and also across the street makes it an easy access joint to come for lunch and next time I'm definitely going to try the sampler of beer that I kept seeing the waitress walk by with.

Swiss and Quaker suggest 1/2 cup at 220 and 200 calories respectively. That's packing a lot of calories into 1/2 cup. Add a cup of yogurt and that's another 190 calories. 400 calories.
Kelloggs and General Mills serve 1 1/4 cup at 130 calories and 1 cup at 110 respectively. twice as much cereal at half the calories. 1 cup of 2% milk increases calorie count by 130.
Even betterI can make myself 1/2 cup of Quaker Oats, 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, 1 tablespoons of maple syrup and a few shakes of cinnamon for a real breakfast of champions, at about 250 healthy fiber and vitamin packed calories.
