I would also like to comment to wesleywhatwhat's post about the existence of "true craftsmen" and "true mixologists".
They do exist, in fact they make lots of money practicing their craft for the enjoyment of others. Wesley probably drinks sour mix margaritas and has never been to San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Austin, Seattle, London, Rome, Paris, or any other major city for that matter where craft cocktails have been on the rise for years now, all over the world I might add. You sound very ignorant when you demean the professions and passions of others, just sayin...
Shrubs are amazing in cocktails, however the Shrub & Co products taste terrible. Shrubs should contain nothing more than fruit, sugar, and vinegar. A chemical reaction takes place making them shelf stable.
The Shrub & Co products all contain WATER and CITRIC ACID. This tells me they are trying to increase the yield of their products by taking shortcuts.
Shrubs take weeks to mellow properly so making them for a bar or restaurant is difficult, but there are better products out there. Once you taste a real shrub you will realize that Shrub & Co is nothing but a cheap imitation, organic or not.
ATL paddy - you should have rockstar actuary on your neck. You probably make enough to buy this operation.
After reading your entry and from what I can glean from your personality, I would have probably given you crappy service too - if that's what even really happened that night - Cliff.
And it's obvious the scoutmob is probably why for whatever reason you got this "crappy" service. Not justifying it but don't take things so personal.
And I'm surprised you ate that food - after getting smart and spelling the word - you know not to mess with people that handle your food right?
When reached for comment, the owners were optimistic they would reopen this week.
I'm dying to try Sobban.
Atlanta has a Mandarin Oriental? Okay, in the time I typed this I could have looked it up :-)
The food is solid enough at BLT but I've always thought the service was horrendous (both waitstaff and front of the house). The Four Seasons also does a nice job with brunch, for slightly less I think, though you can see the difference. Additionally, one trick with UMI, go on Tuesday night- you'll get freshly delivered fish and less crazy/famous/nonsense in the dining room.
I'll race you!
I'd tear up that seafood bar!
This party looks really cool...and it's free:
"I listened to him at the MLPA zoning meeting. He's Italian, they have a flair for hyperbole. Broaden your horizons."
We are all so impressed that you live in Morningside.... Obviously he is Italian as in "Originally from Naples".
It was supposed to be funny. Still very proud of you for living in MS though wow congrats!!!
A good basic NYC slice without the fancy shmancy is still available at Romeos nearby. They say since 1945 begun by owner's dad in Patterson, NJ.

I love the dollhouse! Really cool people, great great girls.
Ask for Lexi!
I have "Rockstar Chef" tattooed across my neck even though I work as an actuary.
GET A LIFE = Cliff
sounds like this place will present the same issues i've always had with 5 season's--great beer, but food that is more adventurous than the kitchen is skilled and a wait staff that is permitted to socialize rather than work. with the amazing pizza options available in decatur and now at timones in morningside, they better get the brewery up an running before they go belly up.
Seriously you assholes, you hate Cliff so much yet you take the time out of your precious day to not only read what he posts but also to write the same old stupid keyboard cowboy comments.
