The Lunar New Year Celebration is inside of Asian Town Center on E. 38th Street on January 25th & 26th, 2014. This past year's celebration was on 2/9 & 2/10.
hey gang, Shelley here from Brewnuts :-) Thanks so much for the love - and YES!!! to the comment above - love Alaina's voice on this piece, really, really perfect. Cheers!
gotta have that big mac LOL
While you make some valid points, I must contest a few of your gripes:
1. If these are "general practices" of restaurants, why are your expectations different? Because these general practices are "customs, policies, and systems," wouldn't it stand to reason that these "general practices" should, in fact, be expected?
2. Tables. Don't blame the hostess for the quantity of tables and seats crammed into a restaurant -- that's determined by the owner. The hostess is only there to greet you and seat you. If the table by the service station is the last one in the house, you can either take the table or go somewhere else to eat.
3. Happy hour. It's designed for the thirsty post-work bar crowd, not for tables designated for dining in. If you know anything about running a restaurant, happy hour is bar-only for a reason. It's better than no happy hour at all. And bar food at happy hour is typically finger food. Not a big deal if you're standing.
4. Salt and pepper shakers. It's disappointing to see a food editor take such a sarcastic and disparaging tone. Yes, when a good chef puts together a particular dish, it is done so with intention. When you review a restaurant, do you "obliterate" the food with pepper first and then try it? Or do you let the food stand on its own merit?
5. Bread service. Bread is not an appetizer. It's an accompaniment to the meal. So don't be surprised if you don't get bread until you get your meal.
6. Operating hours. It's a definitely bummer when a restaurant isn't open when it says it will be, but if this is such a frequent problem, why don't you just call ahead to make sure it will be open? You can probably look up the number on your smartphone. Technology is the way of the future, after all.
7. Cash only. There are a few different types of fees involved when accepting credit cards. A business typically ends up paying about 2 to 3%. If a cash-only business starts accepting credit cards, it will be reflected in the price of goods offered to the consumer. You will end up paying for the convenience of using your credit card. A cash-only policy isn't going to deter someone from eating at a good restaurant. Just be prepared. If you think 2% is an insignificant amount, I guess you didn't mind when Cuyahoga County had raised its sales tax from 6% to 8%.
8. Finally, which places are you going to where they hand out plastic dinnerware and have bathroom keys? I thought those were only at fast food joints, not at restaurants that get the attention of a newspaper/magazine review. By the way, if you're a grown up who has a problem asking for a bathroom key, didn't you know that everyone poops? Not a big deal: http://www.amazon.com/Everyone-Turtleback-Library-Binding-Edition/dp/0613685725
Don't sweat the small stuff.
I think this could really work. I love the idea of serving it with a glass half full. To avoid litigations from dropping it on the floor, I would recommend just serving an inconsistent burger. When the customer orders a weeden it's the waitresses job to right then and there stop listening! Rare, Medium Rare, Well Done, whatever! I ordered mushrooms on top, where's the cheese? too bad, wait till next your visit, you ordered a Weeden, what did you expect?
By the way, cold engine driving pump unburned Gasoline onto Catalytic Converter element Causing damage and deterioration. Properly maintained cars built after 1998 take about 6-8 minutes to reach operating temp. at idle. The heater will not necessarily be warm enough to melt ice/snow from windshield or warm your seat up, so use your scraper and pop for the heated seats next time. Please do not use my info to fool yourself into letting your car run until all ice/snow had melted or to put all of your makeup on. Take care of your car and grease monkeys like me would not make 95k per year. Plant some Carbon Dioxide breathing plants and tree if you want to reduce CO2 levels.
I love ignorance, its very entertaining. I am an ASE Master Technician and Nissan Master Technician with 20 years experience. Driving any gasoline vehicle, made after 1976, below operating temperature is extremely harmful to the environment. All these vehicle have 1-6 Catalytic Converters, 1-4 Heated Oxygen or Air/Fuel Sensors and 1-2 Mass Air Flow Sensors. Mass Air Flow measures amount air entering engine with a wire that is heated by electric and cooled by air passing over wire. Both O2 and Air/Fuel sensors have warm before they can correctly measure amount of Oxygen in exhaust, which in turn determine correct air to fuel for Stoichiometric Ratio. The Catalytic Converter, most important, MUST be warmed to extract and separate and store unburned Oxygen and HydroCarbons, combine Oxygen molecules to separated Carbons (from HydroCarbons) to make water and expel the Hydrogen molecules (harmless once separated) to environment. This is aside from damage to seals and gaskets caused by excess oil pressure caused by low oil temperatures. This is also separate from damage to Automatic Transmissions which also are hydraulic and affected by high pressure from cold fluid. A modern fuel injected (almost any made after 1988) first started on cold morning, running at idle in park, is controlled by the ECM (engine control model) set to preset specs programmed by manufacturer using ambient temp., barometric pressure, fuel temp, fuel pressure, intake air temp. atmospheric pressure, etc. to determine perfect air fuel ratio until operating temp is reached. The ECM cannot control anything when accelerator pedal is pressed outside of fuel mapping versus air flow measured at intake which it needs Oxygen Air/Fuel sensors to accurately perform. Point of this essay, if you care for your car or the environment, warm your car to operating temp. as stated by your owners manual. P.S. I didn't even touch the EVAP (fuel Evaporation system) system.
Wow this is so stupid .that's why so many people get sick .
It's the Browns... Shouldn't we view the glass as half empty?
The tiny and too small tables scream Melt. As much as I like their food the size of the place is always annoying.
I read these and no one mentioned diesels diesel run off heat as they have no spark plugs main source of combustion is severe compression till a explotion on inside the cylinder of the engine this is y u have wait to start lights to heat the air either by glow plugs or induction heater and with any engine gas or diesel being cold the metal is shrunk a very little but do to cold depending on engine mileage u can get piston slapping in the cylinder wall witch is harsh damage there for it help motor longevity proven poing I own a 2001 ford 7.3 diesel with 520,000 miles on it with no issues
Great article. Should have given small hints to which establishments are guilty of said practices...
You people saying that its hard on engines to let them idle when cold don't know anything. Its hard on them to immediately drive them after starting them. Especially diesels.
....with some Mike Phipps Tomatoes tossed at the burger.
In a joint that sells a mirage...it is no surprise that real money - and real compensation - is phony.
Frank Jackson should take time from hiding in his office at City Hall and view this city train wreck.
