Selling 100-Year-Old Fish

Eater reports the happy news that tomorrow, on June 11, Barney Greengrass—which is to the Upper West Side what the Park Slope Co-op is to, you know, Park Slop—will celebrate 100 years in business (may they have 100 more) by charging 1908 prices. Certainly something we could use in the times of high food prices.

Said Urbanite: "With the rollback prices in effect, coffee costs 5 cents, cola 20 cents and their famous borscht, a cold beat soup (usually $3.75) for 50 cents. For a buck and half breakfast can be Nova Scotia Salmon scrambled with eggs and onions. At lunch, $1.75 gets you a sturgeon sandwich usually priced at $17.75."
