A Lucy's Cantina Royale Takedown; Citywide Seizures

New, 3 comments

MIDTOWN— The Serious Eats crew has such a bad lunch at newcomer Lucy's Cantina Royale they they pen an incredibly rare SE takedown: "My dad, a block of yellow cheddar, and our old microwave make a superior quesadilla. And for the $12 charged here, he could probably make 40...There are plenty of bad Mexican restaurants in this world, but few so audacious to charge this much. Lucy's is set up to prey on hapless commuters stranded at Penn Station." [SE]

NOHO— The good news is killer sandwich shop Crosby Connection now has T-shirts. The not so great news is, they look like the photo above. [EaterWire]

SEIZURES— Fork in the Road reports that the Astor Place Beard Papa's has been seized by the tax man. Cobble Hill Blog brings word that a Tasti D'Lite in Brooklyn has suffered the same fate. [FitR; CHB]

GREENWICH VILLAGE— Turns out Scrubs star Zach Braff is an investor in Mermaid Oyster Bar. So he went on TV yesterday to pimp it to the crowds. [GS]
