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


He's gunning to be the next Andrew Carmellini.

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

But there is a car accessory named after him.
And a form of car thievery.

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

I don't understand. Where along the lines did high-end Italian from a 3 starred Michelin Chef turn into Locanda Verde? Did I miss something?

Given the location, purpose, and ownership of this place, I will be very surprised if it's more high-end than A Voce, no matter how many Michelin stars per se has.

Still laughing.

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!

Many thanks, Suzanne F! Sorry for my thoughtlessness. Had I been smart enough, I would have just requested a retitling instead of making you go through the rigmarole [but, hey, you got to give the new site's back-end a whirl(hold the gutter jokes), right?]. I just pray I won't have to serve time in the seventh circle of user hell for my sins.

Ah, the A Voce version of Carmelini - makes much more sense now.

I will still take the "over" on A Voce however :-)

Oh, no, I still love you. It was easier than I expected, once I remembered which is the receiving thread.

All I have to say about the restaurant is: What sort of deal did they have to cut with Restaurant Associates, who I thought had a lock on all foodservice at LCPA. (Except for Juilliard/School of American Ballet, which had [gag, even though I worked for them] Aramark.)

The refrain of this chorus is too much for me to bear. Here's some more fodder for your fugue, Sneak: I saw this just before turning out the lights last night and found myself giggling in the dark for the better half of an hour.

That's OK. I'm still laughing at "Ha. Douchebag thinks it's a moose" from last week.
