#1443005 Herve Mons for Whole Foods

Posted by Orik on 14 July 2019 - 08:43 PM

I was just telling a MFFer the other day about the lackluster condition of some Mons offering at WF, but today there is a Mons Epoisses that is the best Epoisses I've had stateside, on sale at least at the Bowery location.

Someone with many followers posted about us, so all the food is gone. Will have to surprise ourselves tomorrow morning.

Actually the worst part is someone claiming to know a cuisine  "in a way that is both instinctual and omnipresent" just because they're from some ethnicity in some sense.

Exactly.

My dad’s last visit to New York, he insisted on Coney Island. He’d never been and wanted to tick it off the list.

Mind you, this was in February.


Sivan had never been on a roller coaster before the cyclone. She still hasn't forgiven me.

Michelin and Plotz secretly sponsor the list so theirs look better.

They offer it as a shake too.




#1442130 One (or Some) of the Reason (s) to Loathe Delivery Apps

Posted by Orik on 18 June 2019 - 04:42 PM

Seamless is Grubhub, and no, the price is the same for delivery as it is for eat-in or takeout. I've checked.


Grubhub does offer the option for restaurants to use their own drivers, and then they only charge 20%, but the majority of places use the terrible grubhub / seamless drivers.

These services are a plague on the industry.


#1441794 LA Michelin Stars 2019

Posted by Orik on 11 June 2019 - 05:43 AM


Michelin stars remain, despite everything, the fiat currency of the restaurant ranking economy. How much currency can be issued before restaurants and diners consider it a default in the style of the peso crisis? Hard to say, but as it stands each star is worth more or less 30% additional revenue and requires investment of about two to three years of said revenue.

But LA should mosdef publish its own guide where every restaurant gets five ponies because they're all great in their special way, and who doesn't deserve a pony?


Think Foxface will get one or two?

Seven ponies.

The most common cure is repeated exposure to large doses of beluga or similar.

But then you'd just be going for the restaurant.  (I can't speak for anyone else, but I wouldn't do that.)

 

You can also go by public transportation.
