      Incredibly excited about Dig Inn on 67th St – this will be a huge addition to the neighborhood! Really good hearty but healthy fast casual food, and there aren’t a ton of easy options in the area. Can’t wait!

      The Columbia neighborhood Dig In seems to do well. I don’t like paying over $13 for a single serving salad, so I’ll pass on the “locovore” advertising. I buy organic and local at the Farmers’ Market twice a week. No need to “Dig In”

      Worked for Touro College in the 1980s. Crummy facilities, lax supervision, and impossible for teachers to get paid. I remember waiting months for a pay check. They were the worst!

      Mysterious, even contradictory doings at Kefi and its reopening, according to Eater:

      Finally some fast casual food in the area besides Chipotle and Just Salad. We need more cheapish eats!

      Dig Inn is some of the most delicious fast casual food I have had in the city. I love what they stand for and I don’t mind paying a premium for quality. I live a block from there so I am very excited for their arrival!

      Whenever I walk by the Dig Inn near my office it smells absolutely foul, yet there is also a long line of people waiting to go in, so what do I know?
