The tv ad says Fushimi is Zagat rated...but

Zagat seems to be talking about a restaurant on Staten Island...not the one advertised in Bay Ridge.

Maxwell's Bar lives

Tribecca Grill was one of Drew Nieporent's and Robert De Niro's first restaurants and dinner last night at Greenwich and Franklyn
was as good as ever...artichoke garganelli...shrimps and white beans...ribs and jeanne marie whites. But the large center bar which once stole the show at Maxwells Plum on Third ave remains the center of gravity here in its not so new home.
