Curious... those who don't like Three Taverns: Is it because these beers aren't raging with an aggressive hop profile and in your face flavors?
I feel that this could be one of Georgia's best breweries. Well crafted, subtle and balanced.
Good beer doesn't mean aggressive, in your face flavors. You can hide a lot of imperfections with over-hopping a beer or adding an assortment of ridiculous adjuncts.
Sounds like Keagan ventured down here from suburbia and expected a full service "buckhead" experience. I am guessing the other 100 people that were there enjoyed themselves as much as we all usually do. Horrible that you had to walk through "one of the many hoods in atlanta." Hope you are feeling nice and secure back in your McMansion in Johns creek.
Scoutmob, Groupon et al. bring an inordinate amount of amateur diners in to restaurants. Most of the people who use these services do not becomes regulars at the restaurants they visit with their online discounts. They are just eating there because it was such a good deal for them.
Scoutmob etc. are great for the consumers but in reality for the establishment (at least restaurants) it brings a bunch of cheap folks in for a few nights who won't return again until there is another discount deal.
The restaurant I currently work at as well as the last one I worked at are both very against using these online discount services. They are both doing great business without Scoutmob et al.
Didn't they just open their doors like 3 days ago?
Ash, are you seriously taking the time to post a mostly negative experience at a brand new restaurant?
You might want to think a little bit before you publicly ridicule a new restaurant as they get themselves together in their first few days.
If you require the best effort from a new restaurant on a night where it isn't so busy, just return next month on a monday or tuesday.
Maybe some of us that can't spend our hard earned sheckles on something as unpractical as a nice new button down shirt, new pair of slacks or a snazzy sport jacket would like to break our tight budget and get a nice meal once in a while...
Maybe you should focus on the food, service and restaurant's vibe & decor and quit telling us how to dress.
Unless the establishment has a dress code, it is not your place to judge.
I have read Lauterbach's reviews and views for years now. I definitely respect her palate, experience & pedigree.
She has given a couple of restaurants that I have worked at very good reviews.
But I am getting tired of reading her condescending words. I agree with them half of the time and think she is way off base the other half.
When writing about Jamon Iberico in the Barcelona review, she notes "after eating this you will see how weak your local charcutier is." - Well, true we don't have any acorn only fed Iberian pigs being farmed in our countryside. And yes, we are relatively new to the charcuterie game compared to our European friends... But why you gotta be such a condescending beotch about that? We are learning quickly and charcuterie around town is getting better every year..
Nice article Cliff. Great points. Great writing.
