Re: “Nearly 30 years of metro Atlanta sprawl in just a few seconds

@Sprawl Sux: yeah, there doesn't appear to be a link to the timelapse in this article, just to some guy's Flickr site. Here's the Google link for Atlanta:…

Slow it down and check the Dunwoody area between 1997 & 1998--I'm pretty sure I see the scar left by the 1998 tornado.

Re: “Borders to close five metro Atlanta stores as part of bankruptcy protection

Well, they already closed their Brookwood store, so maybe they think they've already thinned the ITP herd enough, so to speak.

Re: “Viewers abandoning Food Network?

I know I quit watching when they essentially quit showing actual cooking shows.

Re: “Chocolate love at Sugar-Coated Radical

After reading Mr. Bostock's post above, my wife & I visited last Saturday. Their confections are everything they were touted to be, and the two ladies are infectiously enthusiastic.

Definitely worth it!

Re: “No way

Note that the top-voted Cheesecake Factory got only 13% of the votes in the survey, which was corrected somehow for the number of locations per chain Olive Garden & Applebees got the most votes, but were corrected downward because they have so many locations.

2 - Texas Roadhouse - 8%
3 - Red Robin Gourmet Burgers - 8%


15 - IHOP - 1%

Considering the limits the survey respondents had to work under, it's not really an indictment of U.S. consumers. Here's the survey logic (one unmentioned characteristic was "kid-friendliness"):

> Ratings were granted against characteristics including
> food taste and quality, atmosphere, and cleanliness.

What's your favorite family casual dining chain? I'd have a tough time picking one, because I think they're all a little boring, but couldn't I get a decent meal at just about any of them?

Cliff, I remember your negative review which seemed pretty honestly arrived at (the cheesecake was all made elsewhere & shipped in frozen), but Ruhlman's review ends with some vague talk of "steps backward", and a complaint that a restaurant respond to its customers. Weird.

That's Django (across from Crawford Long...err, Emory Midtown Hospital) pictured.
