  1. I read this article when it was first published in the NY Times. The only restaurant that I know on their food list is La Paloma and on the drink list is Jeannines and I think it is a bit odd being on the drink list. I thought well this is just me because I don’t go out a lot and don’t drink at bars, but most of my friends didn’t know many of the places the mentioned. I agree with their to do list. The shopping recommendations I don’t really get. Tourists may go to the FM to look, but I doubt they are buying much. Who is going to take a Cherimoya home in their suitcase?
