I get stressed out when I am away from New York for longer than a week or two. I start to just really, really miss it. I have a couple weeks at home now and am so glad.
Andy and I recently strolled over to Il Cantinori on E. 10th, which just so happens to be my favorite tree-lined, brownstoned street in New York (10th between Broadway and Sixth Ave). Il Cantinori opened in 1983 and has been a New York favorite ever since. Actually, I just read that Jennifer Aniston went last night with her new man. Apparently, she is here all the time.
The restaurant focuses on Tuscan cuisine and has great salads, pasta and fish. I think Il Cantinori is best on a rainy New York evening.
