Are the longer, proper SE review of the past no more? If so, I'll miss them.

@DCDreams No, I think if you pour all of your money into a business the goal is to make money back. I think doing something for the community would be the desirable byproduct. If you can't feed your family, you're not able to do anything for any community. I also don't think the article or the owner are saying that this isn't gentrification.
Jakewalk is one of the most underrated bars (for drinks, food, people) in this part of Brooklyn.
Second Franny's; everyone talks about the piza, but the pasta is fantastic. Always seasonal. Always tons of butter.
This article was worth the click alone to learn that Vinegar Hill House now takes reservations!
for $15 a pop those are some seriously shallow pours for a coupe glass
is the DOC $9 (slideshow) or $15 (article)? former would be a steal.
Went this weekend. Totally great.
the liver looks tiny but the half-pours look mighty generous. i'm intrigued.
Question: I've been going to Franny's for a few years now, and just have been to afraid to ask. Is there are real reason not to cut the pie for a customer? Is it just an allegiance to being "authentic?" That logic just doesn't hold for me, particularly for this restaurant. But is there more to it than that?
Any idea if the ham served on the breakfast sandwich is Taylor Ham (pork roll)?
I previously thought this guy was the worst. Now, after reading him doing less with this feature than I think every other chef featured in the past, my thought has been confirmed.
sounds just wonderful. i live within walking distance and will be going
I don't know if it's just the photo, but that don't look pink to me.
I'm wondering if Carey is starting to get the star/noticed reviewer treatment. The Voice reviewed the Tortas today and had a totally opposite experience with the chicken. Pictures look totally different too.
Maybe I'm overlooking something, but what exactly is in the Medicine Wheel Pizza? Just a plain pie?
I agree that the price for those cocktails is unfortunate, but given the location it's neither really surprising nor unreasonable.
Prima is a tad north (probably the EV), but their daily 5-7 PM, 2 for 1 on all oysters and cocktails bears a mention. So good.
Had dinner here for my birthday last weekend. Just a lovely meal.
These pictures are wonderful.
You really think the Radegast crowd/vibe is markedly superior to the Beer Hall? Every time I've been to the former it's been so loud (with yes, fratty types) it's impossible to hear the person talking across from you. I prefer it's beer and food to the Bohemian Beer Hall, but in my experiences there it isn't positively distinguishable in terms of overall environment.
As someone who spends a lot of time in Newark, I'd love a Serious Eats overview of the best of the Ironbound. Do I have any hope?
It's not really important, but the point I was making was that if that's what she was doing prior to law school, it's likely she was never wanting for money, and going into pastry was not as financially risky for her as the article makes it seem. From personal experiences, I know that most people work through the period that they study for the test, or do so while they're still in college. Others, if they want to buckle down and just concentrate on the LSAT alone, quit their jobs and move home to study. I've never heard of someone moving to Micronesia to study. I obviously don't know her circumstances, but it sounds like a rich person thing to do.
Moving to an island in Micronesia to study for the LSAT for 8 months? Thus ends the sympathetic-I-don't-any-money theme.
