As a New Yorker who picks and chooses her restaurant experiences according to fair price, good taste, and convenience, here’s my $ .02:
Are the eats good, and fast, and worth the price? High-altitude fare, unless we’re talking about an ethnic, local, walk-up joint, comes at high-altitude prices. The fancier the elevator, the more expensive the food.
No REAL New Yorker eats hi-rise unless his pockets are deep or the occasion warrants. New York’s true gourmands know that the best food rarely rises above the second floor, no matter how sublime the taste.
I’m a substitute teacher for the NYC Board of Ed, an Insurance Claims handler, and mother to a Kindergartener. Just TRY to give me a headache bigger than the one I already have!
