Is Marchi's in the East 30s in NYC still open? Not 29 courses but a lot of them ... you eat and drink wine and eat and drink wine and eat ... a lovely place for an evening out. And I mean an evening out; this takes you a while.

No sign outside. They don't advertise.

There's no menu. But here's how it goes:

Each course is a small portion, but I promise you, if you leave there hungry it's your own damn fault.

I've had some beautiful evenings there with dear friends ... it's the most civilized way to eat a huge dinner that I can think of. When I was last there with drinks and good wine it would wind up being around $100 a person. I hate to think what they charge these days.
