New York Magazine's Adam Platt really likes the new Upper West Side restaurant Dovetail, but was it my imagination or did he seem a tad condescending about the fact that he found an restaurant in my nabe to his liking. I will admit that the Upper West Side has been a restaurant desert until recently, but things have improved markedly in the last couple of years. Platt does succeed in making me want to try the restaurant, though I don't understand how a plate of duck breast and pistachio nuts ended up tasting to one of his dining companions like "old shoes."
