The Corner Bistro is no kept secret, and it’s one of my favorite spots in NYC. But there are always lines and more lines. Almost always, that is. Who knows if this is always the case, but it’s worth a shot next time I’m in town. If this was the exception, I’ll probably do what I’ve been doing here for years. Stand around the bar, with a beer in hand — which is how the so-called line works — and wait to be seated.
