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) Anonymous552 responds to Josh Ozersky's diner's bill of rights:
Looks like he's not going to be eating at Brooklyn Fare any time soon.4) Scottie recalls a super flop restaurant that wasn't on our list:
I'd add Kolache Mama. It was a chain from Texas that had big ideas about taking over NYC, starting with a location near Grand Central. Apparently, I was the only person in the city even remotely interested in their soft pastry-wrapped sausages. Good breakfast stuff. Closed within 6 months.
3) Scoboco is not interested in new movie theater/restaurant Nitehawk:
Sounds not at all distracting and annoying and gross, to have the people next to you order food and get it delivered and eat it while you're watching a movie.2) ForRealForReal reacts to Ed Cotton's plans for an Italian-inspired, French-influenced eatery:
So damn mundanely, predictable. The only thing worse would have been if he said: a locally sourced, farm fresh, seasonal menu, bistro, with a speakeasy "secret" bar attached where you have to pet a taxidermy skunk near the men's bathroom to have the door open. Whereupon mustachioed, suspender men wearing refugees from Civil War reenactment TV shows, will serve you cocktails your great grandparents probably never drank, in a flea market glass.1) Gargupie on art-collector David Burke's idea for a bizarre steakhouse:
Perhaps his idea of a steakhouse is inspired by Picasso's "Guernica".· All Previous Editions of Saturday Night Five [~ENY~]
