In the Know

One thing that hasn't changed: being in the know, having some kind of insider knowledge, is still an important currency here. A city of 11 million people, 750,000 separate restaurants, and everyone wants to act like he or she knows exactly the best place in the city.

Like yesterday morning, I was having coffee with my friend Melodious, and he said, "You know where you should go? Over in Little Brazil, right at the corner of 79th and Park, there's a restaurant to die for, most authentic Brazilian food this side of Copacabana Beach, they bring the raw sewage in the drinking water directly from Rio."
