Re: “The difference between Krystal and White Castle

Krystal is the one fast food I miss! I haven't had one in almost two years, after the whole "pink slime" situation came out and I decided I needed to stop eating tons of fast food. Don't miss any of it really -except Krystal. A sack of cheese Krystals with that wonderful yellow mustard and those onions beats even Waffle House when you're drunk as hell at 3am. I've had White Castle -the fact that there's no mustard is just WRONG.

Re: “The healthy eating debate crosses the restaurant threshold

I really like it when I have both options -and the healthy option isn't just another salad. There are times when I dine out that I WANT to go all out, but usually I am looking for the healthier option. Being married to a former chef has let me in on the horrifying reason so many seemingly healthy choices in restaurants taste so good -and why they don't taste that way when you prepare them -BUTTER. Given the way America looks and the health costs related to heart disease and obesity, I don't think it can hurt for restaurants to scale back a bit.

Re: “Becoming the cheese man


Whole Foods on Ponce has had it in the past, but I haven't looked there in awhile. It is quite amazing!

Re: “Becoming the cheese man

Thank God you're here! If I ever branch into a new career territory, I will be applying to work under you! Cheese is a passion of mine (as well as my favorite food -I would gladly choose it over chocolate any day), and I look forward to reading your column!

Re: “Intrusion! Too much service a bad thing?

Has anyone been subjected to the menu rundown at The Iberian Pig? EPIC! I enjoy the food and atmosphere there, but don't EVER tell them you haven't been there before! JesusGod -it went on for 15 minutes I swear. I just wanted a drink! Here's a novel idea for managers and servers -if I have a question, I'll ask you when you come back to take the order. How about that? Check up on us once the food arrives and make sure my drink isn't empty. Again -if I need more help -I'll initiate it.

Re: “Continental menu still survives at Petite Auberge

You should try Nikolai's Roof! I suppose you wouldn't necessarily characterize the food as completely "old school," -the chef is quite talented and the food is phenomenal -but the atmosphere, the Russian-dressed servers and presentation -it's fantastically retro!

Re: “Bacon, be gone!

Bacon is a classic and will never die -nor should it! However, I would love the current pork belly craze to fade. Does every restaurant everywhere have to serve pork belly? It's become so passe.
