If so, if you have been, I would love to hear your views.

Many thanks,

Thai food

Thanks Cheryl, no, I don't have gastrointestinal symwptoms, It's been like this for years however, but I am thinking its sleeping too soon after eating, the dreams are wild though.

Thai food

I know this will seem like a weird post, but I would like to know if anyone out there has experienced the same as I do.
I have been eating Thai food for years, whenever eat it at night, I have to worst nightmares, really bad and graphic, I am putting it down to sleeping too soon after eating or perhaps some ingredient that I am allergic to.
Does anyone have similar experiences?

Tasty Italian in Astoria

Try Angelos on 30th Ave on 49th Street. Don't expect much from the decor but the food is great and inexpensive. Most nights they have an accordian player, which, in itself is very entertaining. The host Angelo is very friendly and loves to chat. Def worth a visit.

Frank Bruni's Reviews of Vong & Mercer

Bratty can be a perception, Bruni, while a good critic, seems to have a very high mainteance level of expectation.
Unlike other employment, working in a restaurant allows the public to be the judge and jury of weather you will be there to work your next shift. You may have done an excellent job at serving your customer, but they might be in a bad mood and report you anyway. It just seems that JG should be the one blamed for not reinventing his staff and keeping them fresh.

Frank Bruni's Reviews of Vong & Mercer

While I normally find Bruni to be a bit stodgy, these reviews were spot on. I tried to get in to Mercer last year and was told sorry, with a tut tut type of attitude.
Vong, I have been to twice, the first time was a great experience as it was very fresh and "new". I went back last year and it was a complete factory, we had reservations for 8, and were seated at 9-15 with out any type of apology.
They have really lost the plot on that place.
I don't think it is fair however, of Bruni to point out with such detail the staff he had problems with at Mercer, these are livelyhoods of people who are most likely in jeopardy today.
I can't imagine that Mr V will be going down to give them a slap on the back.
