Very often, when I go out to eat, I know in advance what I am going to order. I associate a restaurant with a dish I’ve had there before and I look forward to it. This has been going on at The West Bank Café (407 W.42nd St. Tel: 212 695 6909) for the last few years. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven every time I ordered their Linguine with Clam Sauce. The West Bank is across the street from Playwright’s Horizons, where we’ve had an annual subscription forever. It’s not only convenient, it’s well-priced, the food is good and they throw in a glass of wine for Playwright’s subscribers. (In my case, they throw in two glasses of wine since I’m fortunate enough to be joined by two non-drinkers.) But can you imagine my disappointment when they changed the recipe for my beloved Linguine.
Far Breton - Far Breton is a classic French dessert, a rich, dense custard with dried fruit imbibed with Armagnac, brandy or rum.
