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) An anonymous commenter has a problem with Eataly's campaign to get President Obama to spend his birthday there:
My birthday is August 4th as well. And it's a super important one. 41. Why the hell ain't Batali inviting me over for plonk?4) MHeinz is excited that Copenhagen restaurant Aamann is coming to New York:
Oh PLEASE tell me they will have Frøsnapper! I just LOVE those..and I can only find them in Copenhagen.
3) An anonymous commenter agrees with David Burke's claim that Brio serves the best pizza in NYC:
Iron chef David Burke is absolutely correct...Best pizza in NYC, period. I have been eating there from long time and I always see a lot of celebrity chefs eating there (Emeril, Eric Ripert, Marcus Samuelsson, Laurent Tourondel, Tom Colicchio, Anthony Bourdain etc., etc.) I think that they are friend with David Burke so maybe they hang out there.2) Anonymous555 has some thoughts on bringing kids to bars:
Call this the Park Slope Conundrum. You're thirsty. You want a beer. But, you're also a parent and you can't leave the little tyke home alone while you load up on your Six Point Ales. What do you do? Well, increasingly, young, hip parents just tie their kiddies into their (expensive) strollers and go to The Gate, Bonnie's Grill or wherever. Now, thanks to the NYPD and to public sentiment, that's going to be even more difficult. What options are left? a) drink at home (but please, please, don't drink and breast feed) or b) go to Two Boots or some other child-friendly restaurant, have dinner and order a glass of wine or a beer. Don't cry on your favorite local blog (usually Brooklyn Parents). Don't assert your right as a parent to drink. Take it from this parent of two (older) kids: time flies. Take your kid to the park. Skip the bar. There'll be plenty of time for drinking later...like after you pay that college tuition bill.1) Wickedson enters a heated conversation about The Meatball Shop and Williamsburg:
I like the Meatball Shop. But where is Williamsburg?
