WHERE DID BARRY POPIK EAT TODAY?--Harry's Burrito's, right behind NYU on Third Street. I decided to get a burrito. I've never been to the place because it looked like your standard Mex. I had a filling meal for under $12 and the place was nicely heated. Can't beat that.

WHERE DID BARRY POPIK EAT ON SUNDAY?--Jaiya Thai (www.jaiya.com), on Third Avenue and 28th Street (opposite Vatan Indian, where I ate last week). Great place. The milk-coconut soup hit the spot. The Veg Peking Duck was a little too spicy.

DOES BARRY POPIK HAVE PHONE/INTERNET SERVICE?--Of course not. The guy didn't come again today. Maybe I'll beg MCI for twelve years?
