Many of those who read this blog already know I grew up in New York City. For those that don’t, I was raised in Midtown Manhattan just north of the United Nations. While not known for the best restaurants, my neighborhood had some bright spots. I didn’t get to experience the place that inspired this recipe until I was in college — though I probably shouldn’t have been enjoying their tasty orange margaritas at that time. But hey, they didn’t card, so whatever.
