The esteemed Ms. Gael Greene, veteran restaurant critic/author of erotica, spent the evening at Streetbird Rotisserie, Harlem's hottest new restaurant, last night, and seems to have had a great time. She hung out with Jonathan Waxman and she got to eat all the dark meat. But the highlight of the evening was not one of Marcus Samuelsson's many variations of chicken, nor was it the mac and cheese (which she liked), nor even the wall of boomboxes. Nope. Instead:
Thrill of the night for me at Sweetbird lasngt. A guy tried to pick me up. I think he was high but...so what. He asked was I single?

Maybe he was high, or maybe it was just the heady effects of roasting chickens and vintage ephemera. In any case, there you have it. Streetbird Rotisserie is a good place to pick up a date.
