nice work beating everyone else to this story
love the thin batter on that chicken...and the fish n chips...n mike's q...n the curry trio...gotta try the Sammy. N like it when Cliff's inevitable complaint is _not about the restaurant ;)
Great album, pretty good review. No need to dis for "Girls Rock Too". In this time, the majority of people _need an elementary intro to feminism
Wonderful work by Messrs Chambers and Camp. ESS rocks. Last time i was there, three huge parties stayed at their tables for an hour after their plates were cleared. How can a host(ess) predict that? Other folks with reservations left in a huff, and we were tempted to, but then had a moment of clarity and chilled. For waiting we were comped so many appetizer we didn't have to order anything. But of course we did and tipped like crazy
WTF? Why are you telling everyone about the person who cut their thumb? He's a friend. If you were in that position, would you want it done to you? "This blank space in CL caused because Bostock sliced his hand open cutting a bagel when he was on deadline". Be considerate. Oh, i forgot. You're the guy who had a fantastic dinner, thought everything was delish, and then bastarded because you had to scrape a lil parsely off your asparagus. Isn't that like having great sex with Wayne after he cooks you dinner, and then you bitching at him cause he left the toilet seat up?
i usually enjoy Cliff's columns but "Back to Scorchville" was not up to his level.
>> After giving props to his server for knowing the menu, he whined, "He...let two of us order the same thing." Like he was supposed to contradict your order? Are you both adults? Should he have pointed out that your shirts clashed? Or that your haircut looked stoopid? Corrected your grammar? Told you not to pick your nose at the table? In my not-so-humble opinion, most foodies would have responded to "Two of you ordered the same thing" by throwing him on the grill. This reminds me of a famous whine heard at Rise-n-Dine: "But i meant to order the pancakes!" Said with a straight face, and a bottom lip stuck out so far one could have served a cup of coffee on it. Sometimes i think many people go out to eat so they can bastard. (At least those who don't comment on columns.)
>>Pointing out that on a Friday night, "the restaurant was half full" _without noting the restaurant is HUGE is tacky or just thoughtless.
>>"Even though my compadres (ouch Whiteboy) were whiping their foreheads, i once again found the food mysteriously mild for the most part." Just read that Cliff. The problem for a chef or restaurant owner in a nutshell. So he should have made _you happy, and instead pissed off all your "faint-of-palate-friends" (nice phrase)?
To those commenting on the health inspector scores: the Buckhead Diner recently got a similar grade after a decade of 90 to 100s. The city, or at least some individuals, are looking for some extra bar money
