It Glitters!

Mel’s Burger Bar is coming along quite nicely.

And more Morningside dining news: Kuti’s, a new takeout store on 116th between Morningside and Manhattan Avenues, just got a good review from the Times. Bwog sampled the shrimp piri-piri and it is delicious, and just $7 for a plate of shrimp and two sides. Most dishes are between $5-7.

  1. Worst food in NYC!

    After working in midtown this summer and having sampled food from many other districts in NYC, I have found that Morningside Heights has to have the absolute worst cuisine in the entire borough of Manhattan. But an auspicious review for Kuti's is a breath of fresh air... I also have high hopes for Mel's Burger Bar! - BC '69

  2. thanks

    thoughtful insight from from a 61 year old summer intern.

    • Class of 2069

      Actually, I haven't been born yet... I'm writing this from the future!

    • Hey  

      Don't be a jerk. I agree with the Alum, eateries around Columbia University are terrible and expensive.

    • Her Career is on Fire!

      Not everyone from the Barnard School of Columbia University goes on to employment high profile jobs such as CEO's of bulge brackets, serving as Justices in the Supreme Court or (wo)manning a gasoline pump, wait nvm. Well just because at age 61 she is employed in an unpaid internship doesn't make the accomplishment any the less notable. Unless you have employment more prestigious than an unpaid internship at the Shell station at the corner of Feldman's Street in Newark, then you probably should keep your lips shut. No, not those lips. Just joking... barnard pride!

  3. I mean depending on...

    The weather, my mood and time of day, it's almost 4.5 inches...

  4. She had Chlamydia!?!

    I want a refund!

  5. Tryin to catch me writing nerdy

    To be or not to be– that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
    And, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep
    No more – and by a sleep to say we end
    The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to – ‘tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep
    To sleep, perchance to dream.

  6. When did Bwog  

    become CollegeACB?

    • When did CollegeACB

      become Bwog? No one except brain-cell deficient frat boys and prissy, superficial gossip girls frequent the threads of collegeacb. Bwog is for the remaining mature, non-cowardly and self-respecting 95% of the school who aren't entirely freshman.

  7. Please don't take off points!

    Sorry, please note the following when grading my exam:
    My name/uni: STD6969
    Date: I'm not looking for a relationship at the moment...
    My TA: Lil Wayne, my prison cell-mate, was in charge of administering and proctoring the test...

  8. UMass-Dartmouth

    Umm... Dartmouth is in New Hampshire! You also forgot Yale and Brown. University of Rhode Island - Providence and UConn at New Haven

  9. Dude!

    Lay off. Eliza and I have been in an "it's complicated" relationship on facebook for like three months now. You missed your chance... But Eugene and Milton from Bwog are still single!

    • The Wild Thornberries

      Bozo? The 1960's called and they want their terminology back. As I am an expert in the classic Nickelodeon TV stint, "The Wild Thornberries," I do not recall Eliza's family calling her by any other name than Eliza. For a rose by any other name would surely not smell as sweet.

  10. wat

    I called Mel's on Thursday (8/5) and they said it would be another 2 weeks before they opened.

    Its true, the food around columbia is generally mediocre and overpriced. anyone who says otherwise is either stoned, drunk, or has no tastebuds.
