Re: “An Ambitious Dance

I agree everything should be a food cart.

Re: “An Ambitious Dance

Re: “An Ambitious Dance

The title, tag line, and first 2 paragraphs of your review don't really match what you say in the rest of it. You are overly critical to start yet give glowing reviews of the food. The only things you don't seem to like are the drinks and the fact that the restaurant started in a shop and not as a food truck. What "basics" are you referring to in your misleading tag line; because when it comes to eating out, the basics of cooking and taste should be most important, both are things you didn't seem to have an issue with.

As a side note, please remember that Grandma's Top Shelf is named for a real person, the owner's Grandmother, before you start throwing around rude and hurtful comments you appear to find quippy. You don't like the drink, that is fine, but I am not sure how taking digs at an actual person and not just the drink itself is constructive or helpful to the restaurant or future patrons.

Re: “Adding Pearls to a Blue Collar

I tried going for breakfast at Tilt on a Sunday about a month ago. They did not have their act together and the line was. not. moving. So I hoofed it over to Fuller's--also local, also plentiful, faster, and without a restaurant concept to process.

I think you need to raise your judgy mcjudgerson up to at least a 5 out of 10. The comparison to Red Robin is a good one. Unfortunately, the food at Red Robin is not good.

Re: “Adding Pearls to a Blue Collar

As much as I detest that area of town and some of the people in it.....lets break this down, decent quality, good price , large portions.....I am trying this. I will just ignore the adult children of the Pearl....simple enough just like them

Re: “Adding Pearls to a Blue Collar

Rich,

Comparing the Pearl to an "effin' abomination" is an insult to abominations.

Go forth and sin no more.

Re: “Adding Pearls to a Blue Collar

Christ. The Pearl is a fucking abomination.
It'd be nice if the Swan Island location had a bar, come to think of it.

Re: “Runaway Yummy

How do you choose the restaurants you review? Does the Merc pay for you to bring a plus 1? CAN I BE IT??

Re: “An Unexamined Life of Pie

Didn't another reviewer at the Merc give a raving review of Life of Pie a few months ago?

The truffle oil used in most restaurants is a fiction.

Re: “An Unexamined Life of Pie

Truffle oil does not exist. I thought you foodie people would know this, seriously or perhaps that is what she is eluding to

Re: “An Unexamined Life of Pie

We're over truffle oil? I didn't get the memo. And I object. Strenuously.

I enjoyed Life of Pie, but I still appreciated the review. Nice job Allison. Dammit, I did it again.

Re: “An Unexamined Life of Pie

Life of Pie was unimpressive when I visited but not disappointing. Nice review Amanda.

Re: “An Unexamined Life of Pie

You are correct, sir! (I had confused the departure of Oro's initial chef with a complete change of restaurant.) So I've fixed it and good on ya.

Re: “An Unexamined Life of Pie

Pretty sure Oro Di Napoli was the first tenant. The Pasta Allegro space this aint in terms of doomed locations. And Life of Pie is miles better than Oro was.
