What to Eat and Drink at Simon Sips

By

It looks like Simon Sips Caf is up and running, per a spot inspection. Youll remember this is a midtown transplant, with owner Simon Mammon operating the La Marzocco espresso machine and chef Ronna Welsh designing the Greenmarket menu, which follows. Funny how she describes the olives as having the slightest bit of anchovy. Come on now, chef be loud and proud about that undersung fish!
