Re: “Restaurant Review: The Cockentrice

After having seems the passionate response from the Ouzts, I would *certainly* give this place a try. Having been a restauranteur and an Executive Chef, I realize how difficult those jobs truly are. The fact that the Outzs' chose to call out this comment specifically shows that they do care a great deal about the entire guest experience, and are working toward that end. Chairs, tables, noise levels (a personal pet peeve) are subjective issues that can and will be adjusted and tweaked as the restaurant and its personnel gain experience. I actually very much appreciate fact that the owners realized that women would like to be able to reach the floor and cross their legs while sitting!
Bravo on a very well written rebuttal to an interesting review. I wish the Ouzts' the best of luck and hope they succeed for many years to come. Should I have the good fortune to be able to score a table at some point, I will gladly dine there knowing that guest comfort, in all of its guises, is a priority.

Re: “Restaurant Review: The Cockentrice

Anyone who wants me to not get "too comfortable" at my table while expecting me to spend upwards of $70/per person does not need my business. I'll be at Bones, Hal's, McKendrick's or Rathbun's being comfortable and enjoying the entire experience, not just the food.

Re: “Weirdness at Woody's Cheesesteaks

Man, I still love Woody's cheesesteaks. Their cold sub is the bomb too! And, surprising though it may be, I'm always sober when I go there. I think you have to be sober to navigate the interesting parking situation there. Don't worry WOody, most of the rest of us still love you!

Re: “Spicy sausage and fake chicken at the Atlanta Food Truck Park

I don't know if I'm the only one who read it, but I thoroughly LOVED your "freak show" story. I love it on a number of different levels. You're a great writer and the story itself begs to be told. Perhaps you could revisit Alice again if she is still alive. If not, perhaps she needs to come alive again in fiction.

Re: “Dinner at Persepolis: fun but not all that

Please try it again when your allergies are not being so bothersome. My husband and I have been going to the weekend buffets for a long time and are *never* disappointed there. The salads are beautifully fresh, the meats are perfect, bread is a marvel and the service is fabulous. Now I've given myself a serious craving. Too bad I have to wait until next weekend.
