Re: “Quick Bites: Joy Cafe plans to leave Buckhead, Sylvan Hills gets a new restaurant, and more

The restaurant is not in the Pittsburgh Neighborhood but in Sylvan Hills. The concept sounds amazing.

Carl Redding's restaurant will not be located in Pittsburgh, the location listed by the college is in Sylvan Hills and borders Capitol View and Capitol View Manor. Please get your geography right!

Re: “Restaurant Review: Brezza Cucina

Not sure why the writer would think that a chef (Waxman) owned restaurant would reflect a different chefs (Evans) style.
If the taste profiles of the food is great, but the execution is poor this falls on the responsibility of the chef in the kitchen (Evans). Poor execution will fall on the owner (Waxman) if he doesn't step in and take corrective action. Perhaps he is giving the chef and the kitchen staff a some time to settle into their jobs.

Re: “Quick Bites: Sublime Doughnuts opens in Druid Hills, The Pecan closes, and more

Dude you need to draw the line between spam on CL and Republicans so that we know exactly how those evil, nasty, hateful, knuckle-dragging, racist, sexist, homophobe, back-to-mono Republicans are doing this to us.

I really wonder how the spammers have so much time on their hands that they have to infiltrate CL Atlanta. Are their lives really that empty? Too many people with way too much time on their hands. Thanks again Republicans for destroying this country.

Re: “First Look: True Food Kitchen

Location was nice, the restaurant is also nice. The food, not so nice. Red chili shrimp way too salty. Not very many noodles and I'm still looking for the red chili. I expected more from the restaurant's appearance.

Re: “Restaurant Review: Brezza Cucina

I had dinner there in Feb. and left with some mixed feelings. My dining partner had the mushroom gnocchi, which was quite good (though seemingly off the current seasonal menu), and our oyster appetizer was good as well.

The chicken I ordered came out terribly dry, which was surprising given its status as a signature item--and its price point. I found myself trying to spread the salsa verde over the meat to bring some life back to it. If you manage to convince me to order roasted chicken as an entree, it should really not be overcooked. Hopefully that was a quirk of the kitchen that day and not the general experience.

Re: “Restaurant Review: Brezza Cucina

The other Italian place at PCM is better - I forget the name, but you can order at the counter. I liked it both times I went.

Re: “Restaurant Review: Brezza Cucina

This place has a great breakfast pizza. I can't speak to the dinner menu though, only been here for brunch (and left happy both times).

Re: “First Look: Marrakesh Mediterranean Market

I couldn't disagree with this review more. The grilled chicken is flavorful and juicy. The babaganoush served with fluffy pita is smoky and full of chunks of beautifully roasted eggplant. The cauliflower is flavorful and bright! While yes all meals at PCM are pricey, this is a meal I'm able to stretch into two. They aren't stingy with portion sizes like Dubs Fish Mkt.

Like much of PCM's offerings, overpriced and unimpressive.

Re: “Service issue #76858: 'Are you still working on that?'

I'm reading this because last night I had an issue with a customer after I asked if he was still working on his salad or if he was done. He cussed at me and gave me "a lesson on my life long journey." Seriously, this just made me feel as if he was trying to say he was better than me. Yet I'm the teacher during the day, I'm the one who should be giving him lessons. I have in 10 years of serving never had a complaint about this.
It is my job to buss your table and make sure it is clean at all time, believe me we get lectured about this daily during pregnancy shift meetings. Who wants a dirty plate in front of them. We are just trying to keep you happy, and if giving a customer service (by removing their empty plate or plate that is just sitting in front of them but they are obviously done) is making them unhappy then what am I supposed to do stand in the corner til you need me. No I am not your servant, I am not your employee. I have other tables and it is my job to serve you and then get the next table ready to sit especially on a busy night. We are being hassled from our boss to flip the table yet we don't want to push you or make you feel rushed. Um?
If it is a Butler you are looking for, then hire one, he or she will be trained on how you enjoy your dinner experience, but that is not my job, my job is to serve you, get you what you need and clear the table.
What is expected from one person is different from another, it is impossible to know how everyone would like to be handled.
Things to look for, is your server attentive, did they greet you in the first 5 minutes, did they address everyone at the table, did they get you the things you asked for, did thet answer your quearions or find someone who could answer them,and if someone else brought the food, did they make sure everything came out they way it was ordered. Is the problem something within the servers control? Does he or she seems to be addressing all their tables and is friendly?

I can not help snobs who assume they are better than others, most servers are educated individuals who are either working toward their degree or have to suppliment. Maybe they are like me they have a degree but also have small children and choose to serve tables to be a good mom.

We are all human and deserve to be treated as such. You could be riding high in April but shot down in May, so remember always put yourself into someone else's shoes before you are so quick to judge.

Asking someone if they are "still working on that" does not imply that the individual is working, just seeing if you would like the plate removed.

If your so easily annoyed you probably should stay away from the general public because we are all so different no matter where we come from.

Re: “Charting the Biscuit Triangle

I know this place is a chain, but I happen to love Martin's biscuits. I would add them to this list, since it lies in the midst of these other 4 places.
