The Feeder of wolves fell, worker of evil deeds. The poet chopped Ljot’s leg off, I brought Fridgeir peace. I do not ask reward from the splasher of gold for that. The spears’ din was fun enough, the fight with the pale man. -from “Egil’s Saga”

22 Hours in Balthazar

Balthazar may look like a rustic bistro, but behind the scenes, it’s a highly efficient, well-oiled potato-chipping machine. It’s 5 a.m. on a Friday morning, and I’m looking at the “vault.” It’s not actually a vault, but it used to be, back when this was a bank.
