Whether you use that term to describe the affliction or the cure — Gourmet Heaven is your mecca. My assignment editor told me about this place (confirming my suspicions) and I’ve never seen anything like it. Happily, it seems like a viable business model for this downtown location. There were many happy noshers this Tuesday afternoon and I’m just assuming it’s busy at night. I couldn’t really go at it properly as my arms were full and there is no place to put anything down because there is food for sale on every surface — you’re gonna need both hands. And there are plenty of choices for your vegetarian girlfriend. I’m not a big fan of buffet eating at all, but this stuff looked pretty good to me. They seem to have free delivery but for cripes sake get up off your couch and go for a walk.
Open till 1am, Gourmet Heaven, 173 Weybosset Street (at Union), 536.9000
