The List

Being a restaurant critic is like being a horse put out to stud; it sounds like a good idea until you have to do it on command all the time.Colman Andrews

Being a restaurant critic is like being a porn star; most schmucks think they would like it and could do it, but wouldn’t and can’t. – ELV

  1. I’d love to give “the list” the old college try. I often, not always, agree with your assessments, so it would be interesting to do your weekly list with you.

    Curious about your thoughts on Island Sushi as we just went to the new one in the renovated Plaza

  2. Yea, but 2 weeks x 3 meals a day = 42 meals.
    You only ate out 21 times cuz! That means there is still plenty of room for jello! haha

  3. “A man is a critic when he cannot be an artist, in the same way that a man becomes an informer when he cannot be a soldier.”
    -Gustave Flaubert

  4. Do you even realize how condescending you are sometimes? Or are you just so clueless that you can’t even see it?

    Referring to a subset of your readers as “schmucks” is in poor taste. The word people would have sufficed there, but yet you selected one with a pejorative meaning.

    You can do better. Please do.
