Welcome to NYC 1YL

I'll be blogging with a bit more frequency again in order to tone and condition my writing muscles. Shorter posts, but more often. The world needs a few more Bigge Ideas. Or Bigge Snark.

I'll start with my concept for a new Toronto restaurant called NYC 1YL. That's short for New York City One Year Later. It's a simple idea -- every month or so, the restaurant will switch up and serve whatever food and cocktails were popular in Manhattan exactly one year previous. Decor will also change accordingly.

Shockingly, since Toronto is at least 12-18 months behind Manhattan when it comes to food and drink (witness the painful delay between the pre-prohibition cocktail craze in New York and its appearance here) NYC 1YL will probably manage to stay ahead of the curve.
