Curly's is great, but this review sucks, you give half ass back hand compiments (addictive salt laden guilty pleasure) a shit sandwich if I ever saw one. Then to mention that star provisions is down the street, yeah but aint this cheap eats? Curlys is far better than Leroys a place that sucked and cost more but I bet it would've been better reviewed because at least Tanisha an'em names wasn't on the menu.
Restaurants and the people who own them are in business to make money like any other business therefore they charge what the market will bear for the product. I don't think a people understand what things actually cost for example, lobster mac and cheese, lobster, quality cheese and labor cost. 10.00 for a nice portion is more than reasonable. It seems that Atlantans just want a standard price point for every restaurant, if a place charges too much and doesn't provide value they won't stay in business, conversely if they charge too little they won't make it, the market will decide. I dont drive a BMW because I can't afford it, but I'm not complaining about it, I drive what I can afford, and I eat where I afford to.
The Jack of Hearts CD is amazing! I've had an opportunity to listen to it and this group will be heard from for many years to come. I'm on my way to the show tonight and I'm listening to the CD. Don't sleep, Peace.
thanks for responding and clarifying although again even with those few added complaints it would still seem like 4 stars (and I don't have a vested interest in BLT) I would also say that you didn't really help your case by stating that you went out with people who don't get out much because they may not have the proper point of reference to know what to look for in a great restaurant because often being out of your "element" can cause some uncomfortability that could prevent them from being blown away, I'm reminded of a scene from the tv show The Wire where the teacher takes some of the kids to a nice restaurant and they weren't feeling it, not because it was bad just that they weren't comfortable (I'm not saying your friends are hood kids, I'm just saying). Again thanks for the clarification and keep up the good work, you're a great writer and I look forward to your future reviews.
I don't understand this review, it was well written. descriptive and I've worked with chef before and he is outstanding so at the end I was sure it woiuld be 4 stars, but only three, your writing needs to reflect the review, the only negative was on one dish and possibly the price although you should've known that the combo of the blt name and the w and the fact it was a steakhouse of course you're going to pay. Let's get it together reviewers and let the written words reflect the ratings. It almost seems like you determine the rating 1st then you fill in the review.
