The Five Best Comments on Eater This Week

Welcome to Saturday Night Five, where we shine a light on the best quips, barbs, burns, and nuggets of truth from Eater NY commenters. Here's this week's cream of the crop:

5) Emceebard on Lucy and Max's review of The Meatball Shop:

More critics should illustrate their reviews. I'd love to see Platt take a crack at sketching a grilled squab over puréed fava beans.

4) WDT (AKA William Tigertt) shares his thoughts on the shuttering of Matsugen:

I loved this place, but it was always half empty. All the good soba places are closing up. I poured some sake on the floor for poor Honmura An last time I went to Niko...

3) S. Dedalus notices something funny about Merri Lee Kingsly's comments regarding the Sifton Fishtag review:

Does she really use "MLK" as her signature? That's like Senator Kerry signing letters as "JFK."
2) Sommelier reacts to the news that a Carmelo Anthony sandwich is replacing the Adam Sandler sandwich at Carnegie Deli:
An "Adam Sandler" sandwich? That's funnier than any movie he's ever made.
1) A special "Guest" commenter chimes in on the This Little Piggy/Arby's roast beef sandwich story to add a bit of historical context:
As for debris, of course, it has, by that name, for at least four decades been a specialty of Mother's also in New Orleans..end scraps of peppery ham, roast pork and roast beef that dropped from the meat-slicing machine, served in a thin, greasy and delicious gravy over biscuits or grits..for breakfast.
