You're right. It's possible that only some of the parties involved are lying.

Interesting...the sliceNYC site seems not to have that "announcement" about DiFara's anymore...

We may never know the whole situation.

Looks like The Observer has the scoop. To be dubbed DeMarco's... scroll all the way down.

Thanks, that seems to clear it up. Now we have to wait and see whether they can replicate the DiFara's experience.

I don't think that clears it up, even though it was written by Josh Lichtman. It depends on which DeMarco he spoke to, who's telling him the truth, and which DeMarco is telling which DeMarco the truth...if there is one truth, that is.

to create the authentic experience of the original will there need to be an internet food-fight over claims of patronage? with different names involved, of course--for symmetry's sake.

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

Well, let's parse it. :D

In the short Observer story, only Schwartz is quoted. There's no reason to think the writers spoke to anyone else. I am going to sit back until I have reason to think the story isn't true. There are e-mail addresses for the two journalists if anyone feels like quizzing them about their sources and fact-checking.

Knowing Josh Lichtman (a BIG BIG DiFaras devotee on CH), he talked to Dom.

I'm sure he talked to Dom. But who knows what Dom has been told by his own kids. Who knows which kids are doing what. Who knows what Dom chose to tell Josh. Etc.

But, speculation aside, it doesn't purport to do anything more than report what Schwartz said.

I haven't drove by a about a week.
They had a sign with big silver dimensional letters saying Di Fara.
Was that changed?
