New Brooklyn Cuisine


Recommended Posts

I know it's rude and Jewish to ask, but how much money does a guy make off a hugely successful meatball shop? Is he pulling out a few 100k a year?

I don't know; I guess that depends on how many meatball shops you've got. And how many more you plan on opening.

Put those goal posts back.     I am not talking about bars which are good, not that good, and bad. I am talking about bars with extensive beer lists*, even if the bar is a dump. I have a dol

The whole point of this board is to comment on food.. Regardless of the wether or not the restaurant is successful. But, i hear what Joe is saying. It is successful and he did take a chance. And he is not to blame that people are lining up to eat his mediocre food. Sbarro's is famous, Red Lobster is successful, Chik Fil A is making more money than ever. But that does not mean they are beyond reproach.

Right. And to me the personal attacks on the style of his house are nothing more than petty jealousy.

If you open your house up to GQ and they post 20 pictures on their website along with a story about what a swell life you lead then you open yourself up to praise or criticism, or random snark. It goes with the territory of being a publicity seeking public figure. No one broke into his house while he was away making meatballs and took those pictures on the sneak.

 

The fact that he's a successful meatball shop owner doesn't buy him immunity.

what am I jealous of? You don't know a thing about my life or my lifestyle other than what I post about here.

 

ETA: and when a guy self-presents himself as a public arbiter of taste and style and his house looks like the spring sale at restoration hardware its completely within reason to mock that.

I haven't made any comments at all about the article, either here or on GQ, except a mild joke about models marrying. I did comment here on the legitimacy of the novel theory of Restaurateur Immunity.

So what you're saying is that you don't think some of what's written sounds like it's coming from a 6th grade girl?
