Because Rich won't like it on principle.

...and we all know I have principles. ^_^

I had a principal once. But that got me expelled.

Rich, I think, would get upset by Carbone because he'd see at as a falsification/exploitation of his background.

I think that's a bit unfair, because it's Richie's and Mario's background, too. But I don't think that Rich would think that makes a difference.

I think that Rich (and I, for that matter) would like the food at Carbone.  It really does sound like they know how to make this stuff and are taking care to do it "right".  I think your assessment of whether Rich could allow himself to enjoy the food given the context (trendiness, history, etc) may well be correct; however, I'd be more likely to think that we'd both be fine there for a meal and then wonder why we'd ever go back, given that same context.  Of course, I liked Il Mulino in much the same way and Rich thinks that it was always fake/phony.  But we both like Parkside more than any of the other places still around.

 

eta: not that the above will ever happen.  I have no plans to set foot there at those prices.

Members here are keenly attuned to the zeitgeist and noticed the Kale Renaissance during it's early stages.  I was therefore unsurprised when I encountered this at Smorgasburg -

Nothing says good food like the word "factory" in the title.

 

Kale chips.  $10.

Kale chips are paleo friendly.

Maybe Rich can tell us if they really ate miso covered kale in the paleolithic period.

They did, but it was never served in any of the restaurants back then.

It think the raw foodists believe that food dehydrated below a certain temp is still raw

true, but those are some of the worst tasting kale chips.


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I make 'raw' kale chips not because I have ideas about enzymes but because I have a dehydrator and it's less trouble than doing them in the oven: I don't have to shuffle them around, and they never get overdone. They always turn out really well and are successful at work and family events.

A dehydrator? That's what my mother must have used to cook her pork chops.
