"It'll be a great place if they ever finish it." - O. Henry

From my yesterday, one re-recommendation from the Upper West Side, and two nice places to drink in the Flatiron District: Land Thai Kitchen, 450 Amsterdam Ave., below 82nd St. Punch Bar and Grill, 913 Broadway, below 21st St.; jester-hat sign out front, urns of fruit-infused vodka inside, and fresh olives at the bar for sampling. Bar Jamon, 125 East 17th St., east of Irving Place; Batali's "14-stool Iberian-inspired" waiting room for Casa Mono next door; small plates in a truly elbow-to-elbow sort of wine bar.
