Majestic owner responds to petition

" width=

I'm late getting to it, but local blogger B King — who, if you haven't read it yet, writes one of the smartest urban-development blogs in the metro region — posts Majestic Diner owner Tasso Costarides' response to King's online petition that called for a time-out to the legendary restaurant's recent renovation.

In it, the restaurant owner says King's blog posts about the renovation are "misguided" and responds to each grievance — in depth, too.

Costarides' letter is too long and detailed to cut and paste — were I to do so it'd seem like I'd be knocking either one. I suggest you go check to King's post and check it out yourself.

King responds with class — he says he respect the staff, will miss the joint, and admits he thinks his notes were "whiny, petulant and immature." I'd say it's more like some honest engagement with a legendary landmark, and that this kind of open discussion — while it can be difficult to watch — is all too rare these days. Bravo to both men.
