Pamela's story reminds me of a time when I was at the bar at a very well regarded southern restaurant and bar. The bartender was young and cocky and speaking off the cuff to the people next to me about liquors and *completely wrong* about what he was saying. After he left we all shared a chuckle.
The lesson overall is to just not be a know-it-all to your customers.
So the $150 VIP ticket just gave you the option to pay more for food from Toki and Rogue? Wow.
Did you know that there are kids tossing signs at an intersection in Columbia with the Serious Eats logo on them to promote Sweetlife?
yuzu ramen? looks like autocorrect is on.
This list needs more Jungle Bird!
Remember when Zagat used to be respected? Yeah I don't either anymore.
Regardless of the wisdom of sending people to Eastern Market Metro instead of Penn Quarter - I thought SE had already made it clear how much Good Stuff sucks
Open Table, while convenient, can offer the prices they do because in most markets they are the only online reservation game in town. Here is more on that from a Washington Post article, which also talks about their newest competition.
City Eats has Food Network $$$ behind it, and at least from the restaurant POV it is a vastly superior product. They aren't ripping off restaurants the same way Open Table does simply because they can. You can pretty easily argue that City Eats is the best thing that Food Network has been affiliated with in years.
No kitchen. Lincoln Center. This is a Marcus Samuelsson restaurant the same way my airport kiosk is a real Wolfgang Puck spot.
Would you rather have a stuffing made with White Castle sliders or Popeyes biscuits?
Coverage of a temporary Falls Church pop-up from the only Serious Eats DC correspondent? Can we give this guy a stipend outside of publicist comps? Let him hit this up on his own time.
Shout outs to Jackelope in Nashville and Schooner EXACT in Seattle - both of which have female brewers and are making great beer
LOL not shocking he put Lou's on there since they paid him to revamp the menu...
These are solid tips but I'd just like to point out that "don't be a drunken, belligerent idiot" is pretty solid travel advice when visiting New Orleans or Fargo.
You should provide a dining guide that doesn't involve Cochon or the quarter proper, for the attendees who'd like to have a meal without every other customer wearing a fedora.
@Meister Gross. Schultz doing the NW dirty by selling to even dirtier OKC businessmen gave a lot of passive coffee drinkers more motivation to look across the street for other coffee options.
If you love Starbucks you probably don't love the Sonics.
Kenji- Any chance you guys could do a guide to the best local sausages in NYC? I'd love to hit some butchers, markets, or grocers up the next time I am there but have no idea where to start. The Chicago sausage store profiles have been fun reads and I'd love to see something similar for NY!
Mis-Shapes - Pulp
George Jones - The Race Is On
Bear In Heaven - The Reflection of You
the only ok
wardrobe malfunction this year
is sauce on your shirt
I also could have read more about Dolcezza or the criminally underrated Northside.
Also, @LizLemon: your complaint about Peregrine is one I've heard from many in the district (and at both locations). However, my old, corporate law working, non facial hair having self has never been on the receiving end of any condescension or blatant acts of hipstery there ordering in my work clothes. And I most definitely have at some of the other places mentioned here *cough*CHINATOWN*cough*. I wonder what it is that makes the place so off putting to some.
