It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Amir’s, the little restaurant on Broadway between 113th and 114th that served Middle Eastern and vegetarian fare, has closed, at least temporarily. There is a sign on the door explaining that Amir’s “must close their doors for now,” but that the staff “feel that this is not a final goodbye”; they “hope to ‘pop-up’ really […]
Nothing in this neighborhood is certain anymore. Absolute was filled with icky living things, and who knows what was happening at m2m. Il Cibreo is gone and Amigos has replaced it (Bwog’s review will be up later today). Bwog has photographically chronicled these momentous changes for you.
History Professor Eric Foner strikes gold—for the second time!

Bwog ventured into the newly-scrubbed feeling establishment to query the proprietor as to whether his food was, in fact, safe to eat. He assured us it was, and that the issue had been “just a […]
Terrible, terrible news as Morningside standby Amir’s has been shuttered due to health code violations. And it only violated 11 points’ worth of your health during its last inspection in January. Bwog tried calling the ill-fated falafel distributor for comment, but after a few rings, the phone just cut off. Close-up of the notice and […]
