appetizer, point, counterpoint, dessert
Some lovely articles in the Post’s Food Section, the first is a general information/rant from former restauranteur David Hagedorn, the second is a pure rant on diners’ complaints and the third is a rebuttal from former food critic Phyllis Richman. All are amusing and informative reads on the perspective of the restaurant, which a lot of people don’t stop to think about when heading out to eat.

In my own food news, I found a place to seat us all for the party, which was a huge relief as I was at my wits’ end. Now all I need to do is get some basic bar/cocktail stuff for Moose & Lion’s place afterwards, but that will be much easier. Then I can sit back, relax, eat, enjoy the company of my friends and whatever freaky plans or surprises they have in mind is all up to them.
