How funny. I guess she hasn't cut her prices to compete with Luke's yet?

It's a good thing she didn't invent the hamburger. We'd never hear the end of it.

Rebecca Charles was just on WNYC making lobster rolls in the studio. It took her only a couple of minutes to harp on about "knock-offs" of POB and her "competitors".

It's nothing compared to the number of Peter Luger knock-offs. She needs to get over it.

It really makes her sound so unreasonably bitter. How long ago did "the original knock-off"*, Mary's, begin? Eight or more years ago? NO, just looked up MFC's webpage, year was 2000!

Bloody hell, shut up woman.

*Charles couldn't bring herself to name any of these knock-offs, of course.

MFC page.
It was not a new dish, as I recognised my tooth marks. Wilfrid

Had dinner here last weekend; Sig Eater wanted lobster, and I grabbed this idea out of thin air.  They know how to cook it. And we had a fun time, until they seated a couple next to us oozing with perfume (yes, I know it might've been cologne, but this was two women).  So fucking annoying. People are just assholes.

 

ETA:  The lobster was actually reasonably priced, I think like $36 for 1.5 pounder.

I need to be able to copy and paste “How many years since I’ve been here?” on many threads.
