Adyar Ananda Bhavan

Bhavan grilled thali, Adyar Ananda Bhavan

Could there ever be enough South Indian restaurants in New York? Of course not; that's like asking if there could ever be enough cat videos on the internet. Adyar Ananda Bhavan doesn't break any new ground with its bhavan grilled thali (above, featuring a masala dosa, vegetable uttapam, and other assorted goodies), its South Indian thali, or its bhel poori, but all are tasty and filling and would be welcome in any (read: our") neighborhood.

Crossing Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Museum

Crossing Brooklyn, Brooklyn Museum

Crossing Brooklyn, at the Brooklyn Museum, presented the work of 35 artists or artist collectives currently working in and around Brooklyn. The results were easy on the eye and heavy on the whimsy.

Houdon's Winter (La Frileuse) at the Met

Cold

Although it hasn't been particularly cold in New York yet, winter is, as they say, coming, and the turn of the season always puts us in mind of Jean Antoine Houdon's haunting sculpture of a shivering girl, both beautiful and pitiful, a stark reminder of our frailty in the face of the elements.

Yeah, yeah, we're several weeks behind, but better late than never for the New York Festival of Light, which brightened Dumbo back in early November.
