Fred’s at Barney’s



Whenever I walk into Fred’s, either for lunch or for dinner, I find myself singing “Ladies Who Lunch.” Surely, not because this is where “those ladies” would lunch. Fact is, Fred’s is a very good solution to lunch or dinner in the neighborhood, if this is your neighborhood. I wouldn’t make a special trip. That said, the menu has lots of choices and everything is fine.

The thing is, you have to be careful about what you discuss as sounds carry and if you don’t know the people at the next table, surely someone will know the person about whom you are talking.

We had dinner at Fred’s last night and, wouldn’t you know it, there was a woman at the table to our left who came over to say hi, she was a friend of a friend. Then, as we were leaving, we realized that we knew one of the people at the table on our right. Me, I rather like this. Dale, nope – too much like Country Club dining for her.
