30 Rock: The Bar Where the Waiters Are Dressed Like Ninjas [video]
Last night's 30 Rock continued its skewering of New York City dining by visiting "that bar where the waiters are dressed like ninjas." (Last month 30 Rock made fun of Serendipity's $1,000 Golden Opulence Sundae.)
Ninja New York, you might recall, is actually a ninja-themed restaurant in TriBeCa that received a zero-star takedown review from Frank Bruni in the New York Times back in 2005. A sample:
Confusing the point of a restaurant with the mission of a "Saturday Night Live" skit, Ninja New York deposits you in a kooky, dreary subterranean labyrinth that seems better suited to coal mining than to supping... Ninja acts like a Disney ride, Space Mountain under a hailstorm of run-of-the-mill or unappealing sushi—but charges like Le Bernardin.
