My mom lives in Cumming. I'm staunchly ITP, like the rest of you worked-up people. I welcome knowing places that are unique/interesting/don't suck up that direction. I'm sure I'm not alone in finding myself OTP from time to time, and I'd much rather know "hey, CL mentioned this place was kinda unique and cool", then end up at Ted's again for lack of a better idea. To point: It's my mom's bday next week, and we're checking out Viande Rouge. Due largely to positive reviews I've seen here and elsewhere. So, thank you, Besha. And calm down folks. No one is forcing you to drive to/ live in/ read about any suburb. I share your anti-suburb bias, but my god. If I find myself in one, I'd rather know where to go that is interesting than end up at Chili's.
oh. my god. For starters: the "dressing on the side" thing was not the point nor message. Also: I really don't think true, actual allergies are at issue here. I was at The Family Dog the other night, and a friend has a shellfish allergy. They cross-checked that there was no contamination issue and that she'd be cool. And my sister has celiac, and Rosebud has always accommodated her.
But you know what? The number of people - some of my closest friends included - that show up at restaurants presuming that they can get a burger with a fried egg added, because poached egg is on a different menu item... Or things of that nature. It's embarrassing and silly.
I don't eat pork, just by choice. But as I have no true ailment, there are times that I just trusted in the chef that this was his creation. And it was tasty, and from a culinary perspective, I was richer for it. That's more what this is about, folks.
JoeInAtlanta - I like both Kessler and Eyester, in that I regularly read everything they post. But, you, my friend, nailed it. I want my critic to be a more advanced and trustworthy version of the void Yelp is now filling. And not filling well...
