Went to B&H twice. Very mediocre food in extremely cramped surroundings. The first time I figured it was an off day. The second time I realized they just were coasting on ancient laurels. For another 2 bucks I get the same meal at a table by the window all for myself at The Kitchen Sink on 5th and 2nd. Your mileage may vary, but white knights.

A place to bury strangers is a very good band.
