But I want to talk about lunch. We went back to Jerry's Cafe on Chambers Street and I wanna tell you why. (Thank you Tribeca Taste, for the Photo.)
We coulda had Pizza, or any nationally franchised fast food joint, but that would not have been what we needed. We needed
more than fast food, we needed a break, a civilized break.
For starters, at Jerry's Cafe the kids got to use a clean bathroom, all sit at one table and have water in glasses brought to us. Fast food
places do not offer tables for 5, the likelihood of their crapper being usable is random at best and if you want anything but a mega sugar-water drink you get a dirty look and a 4 oz cup.
We also got to sit, nobody rushed us out. At Jerry's Cafe enjoying a lunch is not considered Loitering. (Thanks for the photo Free Refills at The Consumerist) We needed that hour of off-feet time. So the meal cost like twice as much as a Happy Meal, but we got to sit and enjoy it for an hour and a half. So I think we got our money's worth.
We also ate good, freshly prepared FOOD, not the processed food product that comes with a plastic toy in McDonald's. We got enough plastic toys in my house. And by the way, BP doesn't just make gasoline, they make plastic toys.
So thanks Jerry's Cafe, hope to see you again soon.
