With Muzak Like This... 

I think Ruth Reichl's going a little overboard to call the lobster a "bargain" when two lobster dinners, no appetizers, and a mere half carafe of sangria tallies up to $90 (with 20 percent tip); but aside from the decadent and wonderful Lobster Quijote dish, what made Sunday night dinner at the venerable 1930 Chelsea restaurant El Quijote (23rd Street between 7th & 8th in Manhattan, no website) more of a hoot was their "deep cuts" Muzak, featuring versions of The Beatles' "Sun King," "Be Thankful For What You Got" by William DeVaughan, and Steely Dan's "Night By Night." Insane.
