East Village hole-in-the-wall Chickpea, of name-our-restaurant-contest fame, has announced the winner of its name-our-roasted-eggplant-sandwich contest. Weblog Tale of Two Cities is none too happy with the result:
They just announced a winner, and it's "Chickplant." Yeah...you heard right, it's fucking Chickplant. Among God-knows-how-many-thousands of suggestions, Chickplant - and mastermind Jason Spak - walks away with a cool G. Clearly we're not bitter.Ah, good ol' Chickpea. One of the many places that makes the East Village the second best neighborhood in North America. One chickplant, please!
