Viand Coffee Shop

If you are ever in the neighborhood of Madison and 60th, and need a quick bite, check out Viand Coffee Shop.   A true New York experience. 

Our orthodontist is in the neighborhood.  We have taken things out but never had the luxury of sitting there.  Yesterday our luck was with us.  There are only about 8-10 booths down the side left wall that each only fit 2 people per booth.  Then the large counter.  We had 4 and there were 4 seats available at the counter, next to each other.  Luck.

The guy running the place writes nothing down.  He literally shouts out the orders, in their own personal language "whiskey with turkey melted sweet cheese" and in moments your meal appears.  The food is good and the service is awesome.  We were in an out in less than 1/2 an hour.  The fresh turkey and the burgers were really top!

I might have to make it a 6-8 week outing, like the orthodontist.
