Judah Friedlander Is Not a Big Fan of New York Burritos

By

After last night's Cinema Society screening of Midnight in Paris (and after asking Woody Allen about his feelings on Elaine's), we found ourselves having a rambling, late-night discussion with Judah Friedlander. He didn't mention any of his recent Murray Hill–related controversy, but he did mention something near and dear to Grub Street: burritos: "There are a lot of Mexican places in New York, but they gotta step it up,” Friedlander declared at the swanky Soho Grand party, sponsored by Thierry Mugler. “There are too many non-refried-bean burrito places in New York,” he added, as waiters scurried around with trays full of caviar, risotto, cheese ravioli, and beef ribs. The 30 Rock star does tolerate a couple of burrito joints in the city, but says they pale in comparison to those in San Diego. “San Diego has the best burritos in the country,” he said. “Any $2 burrito shack in San Diego will blow away any place in New York City. We gotta step it up.”
