Re: “A Reborn Lit in Tremont Reflects a Changed Neighborhood

The literary hasn't been good for a long time--since steve sold only rolling rock to a few sitting on uncomfortable stools.
Figures, as Tremont is worthless as a destination or a place to live anymore. Boring food for rich old people.

Re: “A Reborn Lit in Tremont Reflects a Changed Neighborhood

"Now, the building is home to another place to eat. When it comes to the pursuit of fun, dining out has eclipsed antiquated pastimes like art, theater, dance and music. And nowhere is that more apparent than in Tremont where, for better or for worse, gallery hops have given way to small-plate sorties, progressive dinners and Taco Tuesday. "

Good-bye to artists, actors, musicians, and hipsters.
Hello to yuppies, foodies, snobs, and gentrified elitists.

You could also sense this at the Taste of Tremont, where the food prices keep on rising every year.

Tremont used to be interesting and culturally-oriented.
Now it's just kids with fat wallets scarfing down designer food.

Re: “The Polish Boy: A Brief History

The above-mentioned info is incorrect, I worked for Virgil Whitmore the original founder of Whitmore's BBQ in the year of 1980. At that time when he first came back from Hawaii I was so fascinated by the polishboys how filling and tasty it was, So I asked him where did the idea for this sandwich come from, he said the concept came from the basic ingredients he had in his restaurant which were beef Polish sausage, French fries, claw slaw, bbq sauce and hot dog buns. And the reason he came up with this sandwich was because the area in which he opened up his business was a poor area and couldn't afford to pay top dollar for carried out food so his daily special was four polishboys for a dollar for which you can feed your whole family.

Re: “A Case for Not Making a Big Deal About Finding Hair in Your Food, and Not Even Sending the Plate Back

Wouldn't it be totally ironic if the one instance of this in my recent dining memory happened to occur at this very restaurant last Saturday night? The situation was politely and discreetly called out to the server, who quickly offered (but then didn't, actually) take the mostly consumed side item off of our bill. No big issue, stuff happens, and handled fine, but it'd be nice if this stuff didn't happen at all, too. Anywhere.

At the same time I heavily frequent a (sit down) restaurant where once I found a long hair totally wrapped around a french fry I was putting in my mouth... and vowed to never eat there again. That was probably about 700 visits ago.

The time that person found a mouse in their bagged salad over at the hotel in Beachwood. That was a lot worse than I hair. No years of living in a house full of boys would prepare yiu for that.

I was a Executive Chef for 40 years b4 retiring and I agree with you. If the general public knew the amount of foreign objects that are allowed in food by the FDA they would never eat again.

Re: “A Case for Not Making a Big Deal About Finding Hair in Your Food, and Not Even Sending the Plate Back

I feel the same way. I've pulled a few loose strings out of my dishes over the years and just kept going. I've sent back meals that revealed plastic pieces and a shard of glass, but a stray here or there is only a speedbump.
My wife could not endorse or recommend my indifference to leftover produce from the follicle garden.
