Let me say that there are actually some great food/beverage purveyors in New Haven, chief among them Rick at Yankee Doodle, the old Singaporean cashier at Ivy Noodle, and Eli at Original Falafel. Also, there is Mark, the head chef at Gastronomique. This guy is straight out of an SNL skit. He cooks the most elegant gourmet food while he talks and acts like a construction worker from the Bronx. "Yeah, let's get some fuckin' prosciutto in dere, maybe some fuckin' goat cheese, and some a dat risotto shit on the side." Plus, the food is excellent and not as overpriced as people say it is.
