" I get dinner and lunch out of the "two-can-dine" meal for less than $10 (complete with salt and fat). It is very hard to cook for less."
...really? You complain that Michelle Obama is "idealistic" for encouraging people to eat garden-grown vegetables, then bemoan the cost of fried chicken?? It's not hard at all to cook for less than $10 a day. Grill some vegetables and rice. Make spaghetti with fresh tomatoes.
And I agree with kiteless--why does your paper write review after review of Miller Union and Empire State South?? We get it already. How about seeking out some of those cheap Buford highway places you mention above?
I agree w/goldnuts13--Great establishments like Empire State South & Miller Union get lots and lots of press for good reason. We already know they're good, give us reviews on places we don't see & hear about every day.
And yes, please let us know if a restaurant is of low quality! Especially if the online reviews are good!
Finally tried this place out yesterday and I have to say...unless they've changed significantly since you ate there, Cliff, I don't know what you see in this place at all?
We started with the soup of the day-a crab chowder concoction that was way too heavy on cream and under seasoned. My husband's jambalaya tasted like canned tomato sauce and my Po-Boy was very disappointing-OK oysters with shredded lettuce & watery tomatoes of the quality you'd find at Subway. The remoulade tasted like mayonnaise. Not at all worth the $10 they charge. The space also seriously needs to consider hiring a designer--reminded me of a college cafeteria. I really, really wanted to like this place, but the quality is just not there.
