MacDougal Street / New York, New York
One of the things I miss being in Birmingham is the good eatin' offered pretty much anywhere in Manhattan. While Birmingham has excellent curry houses - and my favorite restaurant, a Persian place called Shiraz is right across the street from my apartment - I can't get excited over typical British cuisine. Come on now ..bangers & mash ..kippers ..scottish eggs ..steak & kidney pudding. While driving to the office the other morning, I was listening to a local Birmingham station on the car radio and the most popular "make at home" dinner based on user call-in was liver & onions. Ugh. Give me the Bleeker/MacDougal St area of the Village any day.
