Lunch: Good company, okay food

My friend Carrie and I had lunch at Mayrose today.  It’s a diner-with-a-twist in the Flatiron District.  I always want it to be better than it is.  In my memories it’s this yummy place, but then I go there and am almost always disappointed.  The meatloaf was so-so, as were the mashed potatoes, and the "mushroom" gravy was gluey.  Sigh.

That’s okay.  Lunches like this aren’t about the food (as uber-agent Joni Evans once said, "I can always find something to eat.").  Carrie and I had a great time and caught up on life, love, and work.
