WHERE TO DINE?

Where New York - - Insider - Lois Levine

When chat­ting about restau­rants over break­fast re­cently, Ron Clai­borne, an ABC tele­vi­sion news cor­re­spon­dent, de­clared adamantly, “Hey, I’m no foodie.” And when he or­dered his eggs with­out bread (“I don’t re­ally like bread, ex­cept for sour­dough”), I was in­clined to agree. But the more we talked, the more im­pressed I be­came with where Clai­borne goes to chase down a meal when he’s not chas­ing down a story for “Good Morn­ing Amer­ica Week­end.” “I usu­ally don’t do brunch, be­cause I work week­ends,” he ex­plained. “But when I do, I like The Smith. It’s loud, but they have good short ribs hash. I grew up on grits, ba­con and eggs, so I love grits, but they’re hard to find. I go up to Sylvia’s on week­days, sit at the counter and or­der the sal­mon cro­quettes and grits.” And when Brook­lyn Nets fan Clai­borne is at the Bar­clays Cen­ter for a game? “Mor­gan’s Bar­be­cue. Ex­cel­lent ribs—great brisket!”—
