Our readers never rest on their laurels when it comes to a restaurant opening. Recently, David Bouley opened Secession (formerly known as Danube) with a brand new menu. Here is what one of our readers had to say:

Looking for Lunch?

I was walking around Tribeca on a Sunday afternoon. I was hungry. Very, very hungry! Zucker's was the answer. I asked the counterman, "Do you have a signature sandwich with smoked salmon on a bagel? ".

He answered, "Yes."

Ask for the signature smoked salmon, onion, tomato, cream cheese, bagel sandwich for lunch any day of the week.
