GRAND STREET BETWEEN CROSBY & BROADWAY
Yuri is in the mood for a dim sum lunch and what a better place to go to than
the many choices around Coco Canal, as we like to call it, aka China Town.
We walk a block west to Broadway and take the downtown R train from the
8th Street station. Once there I convince everybody to take a little detour from
Canal Street and walk a few blocks north to Grand Street where there’s a
quaint Italian trattoria belonging to a friend of mine. Actually, I needed to drop
off some keys and my crew waited for me outside. Suddenly, I hear Sami
shouting my name.
I grab a handful of sugarcoated chocolate nut treats from a jar on the counter
and run out. “The Flash, The Flash!!!”, Sami is screaming, “right there across the
street”. By the time I stumbled out of the trattoria he was gone. I look to René and
he just nodded in his “Clint Eastwood” modus operandi. He got it!
Thank God he was with us.
