By the time we had gotten to the Blue Ribbon Restaraunt on Sullivan Street our defenses were pretty well down after being in the maelstrom of NY for several hours having made our way on foot through much of Soho and Noho. Our exhaustion mostly stemmed from the rush and sensuality of these two areas of New York's Lower East Side, but by about 6pm we only felt our hunger and the blessed need to sit down.
Luckily, we regained our strength at Blue Ribbon. I got steak tartare which had a great texture and gave me a much needed shot of protein; Lynn had Skate, one of her favorites which helped her get her second wind.
Most of all we were glad for the great attention we got from the superlative and unflappable staff.
