Re: “That's Metrotainment

I often read over the so called "critiques" of local culinary sages with a sense of vague curiosity and sometimes even mild amusement. Mr. Bostock's forced cleverness never ceases to amaze me. I pray to the food gods that he can one day let go of the past and give the established neighborhood favorites a true second chance at a decent review. No such luck here as Bostock ramps up his pretentious, ney pompous commentary on one of Atlanta's truly popular neighborhood restaurants: Einstein's. As usual, he only tastes a few items from the menu and forms an opinion on the entire menu, saying the chef is "not very creative" and the duck quesadilla is "disappointing." I have tried this item myself and can tell you it is quite good and also a good value. Bostock finds the tortilla soup "over-seasoned like so many restaurants flavor their mexican dishes." I've tried this item as well, and was happy to find that the soup was indeed prepared by actual latino cooks. Perhaps Cliff doesn't like authenticity? And what's with his assertion that the term "blackened" refers to a passe style of seasoning? Again, ease up on the 'tude there Cliff. I really believe it may be nearly impossible for Bostock to actually enjoy himself at a meal. Even his compliments are back-handed with such jewels as "the peach poundcake ... Nothing to dislike there unless you are averse to huge amounts of sugar and fat." Jeez Cliffy! Give us a break! Perhaps you should stay out of the "old favorites" and stick to culinary fare that is more to your level of snootiness...like perhaps, oh god...anywhere else but Atlanta!
