    It is a shame that the Italian market doesn’t do a better night time business. I live near there and maybe it would help if they got the vendors to clean up their stalls before they leave for the night and light it a little better.

    I don’t know why they profiled Paloma in the article. They could have talked about that new nina’s trattoria if they needed a third “doomed” place in the market to write about.

    is this article for real? did trey pop go on monday or tuesday night? monsu is full all the time. 4 weeks ago i tried to walk in on friday at 6:30 and they were booked for the night. 943 is filled thursday,friday and saturday too. i don’t know if the reviewer understands the business flow of the market but its dead monday through wed. at least. nice fucking article http://youtu.be/gdJZhdi_-Tc
