1: cafe gitane is for sure the cutest little place to eat in soho--possibly all of lower manhattan.
2: i can't go out with a skinny dude.
i realized this when i was looking at all the skinny dudes in cafe gitane. how is a skinny dude going to protect me from evil, bully neighbors in my office building? how is a skinny dude going to lift an entire car with one hand--if i needed him to? how is a skinny dude going to rescue me?
bonnie tyler said it best:
"I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and gotta be fresh from the fight ...
It's gonna take a Superman to sweep me off my feet"
yes it is, bonnie. yes it is.
some pics from gitane. i wouldn't drink the tap water they put on the table. i sat at the bar and watched the dishwasher fill them up. it wasn't very sanitary.
pan au chocolate
chicken sandwich with mango and strawberries. really good.
cucumber yogurt and hummus with rose petals.
