This week Platt files a twofer on the "twee" Apiary (one star) and the "grim" Delicatessen (zero). He likes Apiary alright—suggesting ladies will probably love it—but seems to have the most fun going at Delicatessen: "Famished-looking models lounge around white Formica tabletops, nibbling hesitantly on bits of vulcanized pastrami and noxious helpings of bland chopped liver. There are blintzes filled with saccharine deposits of cherry verbena...and a Reuben sandwich that looks like it’s been issued directly from the kitchens of Continental Airlines." [NYM]
