Now that it has a name, no longer T.B.D., I'm starting this thread.

Because I want my name next to it. Ask the admins to change the title of the last one.
Why not mayo?

TBD is a much better name than Lincoln. Would sooner see it named Gettysburg.

He started the last one, too. So he gets no advantage out of this.

No, no. Should be Hummer.

the people who flock to dine at the restaurant on account of its reputation/stars are getting their money's worth because what they are after is a piece of the reputation/stars and nothing else. their money is not wasted. -- mongo jones, 11/5/2014

Seriously? I had no idea this was considered a status symbol around these parts. I should be starting more topics then.

Starting the Sam Sifton thread really changed my life.

I for one am disappointed that Benno isn't doing something fancier, but I will try it anyways.

ok so then maybe what I was snidely trying to point out is that starting a restaurant thread consisting entirely of the name of the restaurant is pointless.

Hey you, get your mind out of the gutter.

I just figured, Well, if they're giving it a car's name . . .

You dirty [young] man!


BTW: I'm trying to figure out how to merge in the new system. Not that I merged well under the old. But I'm trying.

ETA: sonofabitch,* it worked!

Far be it from me to question, but "Lincoln" doesn't strike me as "Italianish."


How about "Abe is Italian"? :D

I must say, when I think of Lincoln, a slap up dinner is not the first thing which comes to mind.

Better to name a restaurant after him than a theater.

(Before someone else says this, good thing the word "Center" intervenes in "Lincoln Center Theater".)

But you'll notice that (unlike Lincoln) nobody's named a car after Kennedy.
