yesterday, saw thank you for smoking, a directorial debut by jason reitman whose father directed the ghosbusters. like the father's work, the son's is a great joy to watch, though not much substantive to say about it.
thereafter, nina and i went to ureña on madison and 28th. the expectations were quite high on account of the chef's pedigree.
the food was delicious, but not exciting. that is, with the exception of the desert. the lighting was a bit too bright, as nina pointed out, and the service awkwardly "over-enthusiastic," as someone wrote on citysearch. unfortunately, the reviews are accurate.
prognosis: closure in 2 years.
