Re: “The Angry Chef's 7-course response to John Kessler's open letter to Atlanta chefs

I think Ron actually has feral chupacabra on his brunch menu, now that you mention it. Oh no, it's "free- raised". My bad.

Pardon me Besha, I meant to say the AJC has no fine dining restaurant critic, not Atlanta.

Re: “The Angry Chef's 7-course response to John Kessler's open letter to Atlanta chefs

First and foremost, Atlanta has no Restaurant Critic for fine dining. Restaurant critics are anonymous. Period. John Kessler's picture is at every waiter station and host stand in Atlanta. When he comes in, there is absolutely no way his experience will mirror a typical diners. The fix is on. Everyone will stop what they are doing to take care of John, but without being to obvious about it. That's fact. What else would they do?
Second, the restaurants he mentions as stalwarts did indeed do a terrific job cooking for the critics. They indeed only cooked for critics. which is why they no longer exist. I would advise chefs to listen to and cook for their guests, pay their bills, and not lose to much sleep over the bomb throwers, haters and egotists sitting on the sidelines.
Thirdly, both Nick and Ron really nailed it from the chefs perspective. Nice job guys.

Re: “Gravy Train: Gekko Sushi opens, Noon Midtown closes, Our Way Cafe looks to reopen...

Been to Gekko Sushi twice now. Had tasty sashimi and rolls both times. Giant clam was killer. So was uni. Service was uncommonly friendly. Not expensive at all.

Re: “An op-ed column inspired by Dynamic Dish's closing

Also, locals alone don't fill restaurants these days. Conventioneers and business travelers are crucial. There are obviously many more of them in town than the burbs.

Darin, OTP indies have the highest failure rate of all. If you're not kid friendly or a steakhouse, you fail in the burbs. See, Dick and Harry's, Rainwater, Asher, Trattoria Monaco, Relish.....

Re: “Indie restaurateurs deserve a chance

Foodie 2, NPUs, while often a challenge to deal with, are generally a net good. Without them there would be a Pink Pony on every street corner and residential in-town neighborhoods would become extinct.
