I'm guessing all these folks going on and on about helping the homeless don't live near the Peachtree Pines shelter, nor do they enjoy carefree afternoon and evening strolls in the area. Just because someone tries to help homeless people (such as the folks at Pines) doesn't mean they are good at it. The shelter is a disgrace and not just because they get "all the folks that no one else wants." Accountability not only sets the discipline for the folks that run it, but it also demonstrates, by example, a disciplined approach to the homeless regarding taking steps to moving their lives forward.
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.
I'm with @JFester. Zyman's review seems personal. We had lunch Sat Jan 2. The food was fantastic and the service very good. The decor/feel of the place gave us a feeling of escaping our day and relaxing away our time. I wasn't expecting much, I don't care for Fry's King + Duke. We look forward to returning to Marcel.
Wednesday night, after a show at Vinyl, we decided to walk over to Bar Margot. At 10:30 we didn't have many food choices in the area. Food was great, they had some delays in the kitchen, the front of the house handled it professionally (acknowledging the delay, manager coming by, topping off our almost finished wine glasses, giving us some snacks). Everything tasted very good. The two pasta dishes were fantastic. In particular the quality of the pasta, for instance the garganelli, is memorable. We'd come back just for the pasta. Understand that these pasta dishes are about half portions. Perfect for a light dinner after a show.
MacGyyer51 you need to pull out of the last century. Lots of successful black, Jewish, hispanic, asian, Indian folks in Atlanta.
I'm addicted to their butter. We lived in France and when we got back to the States I'd try to find French butter from Normandy. Sometimes it would be in good shape, sometimes it would be past its prime. This one is on equal footing, and just like in France local is always the preferred choice if all things are equal.
We were there a couple of weeks ago. We'd gotten to Krog Market, the food stalls were closed and our friend's husband took a liking to the menu and we went in. Based on this article I insisted that we only do a drink and an appetizer or two and then go to another restaurant to settle in.
We had the Suckling Pig Grattons with a few cocktails and all was very good. Memorable even. Our waiter was warm, friendly and efficient. The chairs were fine. We'll give them another try.
One of the things I miss about living in France/Spain is not feeling like the servers see us as their bank, they see their work as jobs. None of this nonsense from @Cassie ""Stop camping in my section and get out of here; I need to turn this table over and pay the rent." We hated them." Fortunately I have had good luck with having professional U.S. servers wait on me and less of the sarcastic, only see me as a bank to churn - those servers give waitstaff in the US a bad name.
