On Love and Loss

Restaurant critic Sam Sifton on the death of beloved restaurants: "Joan Didion had this right about death and grief: the absence brought about by it is unending. This is as true of the loss of restaurants as it is of the loss of friends, of loved ones. The experience of Doyers — or Vietnam — is not going to return. So Nha Trang on Baxter Street isn’t going to fill the gap even if it’s good." [Diner's Journal]
