If you want to know New York, get to know its street cuisine. I learned it early.

Predrag Grncarski's a cappuccino guy; his wife, Giselle, favors cortados. Not that they ever have time for a coffee break.
I often say, "Let's meet for coffee." But I never really meet anyone for "coffee." I don't drink coffee. It's more of a figurative statement. It's like when you say, "Sure, I'd love to hear your band play sometime." You don't literally mean it.
