Re: “Two New Ohio City-Based Fast Casual Eateries Offer Bang for the Buck

Oh what fun. I'll make a trip to Ohio city for a fast casual meal. 15 minutes of a mediocre dining experience.

Enough already with the fast casual!

This is good for the neighborhood. We needed affordable and moderately healthy fast casual spots.

Re: “Poison Berry Bakery Opens in April

Actually, it is written correctly. The writer is making a comparison to products made "with" those items. If you read it again you will see it is correct!

The first paragraph should say "treats made withOUT cholesterol-rich eggs..."

Re: “Worker-Owned Green City Growers is On the Path to Profits While Giving Refugees and Ex-Cons Gainful Employment

I love the concept behind this initiative and others like Edwin's. Everybody wins... I've bought their lettuce at the market at Public Square and it's beautiful. I'm so glad that Lisy has helped to turn things around, this program is definitely worth saving.

"On the current roster are people with nonviolent criminal records and immigrants from Bhutan, Africa, Guatemala and the Democratic Republic of the Congo."

Africa is a continent, not a country, and DRC is a country within the African continent. Come on.

Green City Greens are also sold at the West Side Market. First stall on the right off W. 25th St. Always very friendly and the greens are first rate.

Re: “A Dated Menu and Uneven Execution Hamper Merchant Street Eatery's Hopes of Lasting

I have been to this spot twice since this review was posted and I can say with certainty that this place is worth another visit. I visited when it first opened and would agree with most of the comments from Doug; however, the quality and execution has improved dramatically. I had the steak tartar the other night and it was perfect and very reasonably priced. Wine list is very good and gives a lot of options with a lean to old world (which suits me and the Merchant Street offerings). I strongly recommend giving another look at this place, I was very pleased that the owner listed and improved.

Re: “Chicago's Home of Chicken & Waffles Dishes Up Comfort, Could Still Use Some TLC

While I applaud the design, our experience here was quite a bit less than ideal. It started out very nice. Both the host and our server welcomed us "home", our server even shaking our hands during his introduction. From that point on, it went downhill. After advising we would receive the best service ever, we were also advised that we were his last table and he couldn't wait to leave. We then ordered waters and bar drinks. Bar drinks came out quickly, but I had to ask three times for water and forget about a water refill the rest of the time there. Immediately after putting in our food order, the waiter came with the tablet to check out. He wanted to be sure that as soon as we were done he could leave, he explained. This put us in a very awkward position in tipping as we are being asked to tip before service is even provided. This also meant if we wanted another drink we would have to go to the bar and wait in line and start another tab. The menus were left on the table until I finally put them on another table. What are we going to do with menus and no server?? The food itself was decent but the dining experience was horrid. The person who seemed to be the manager walking around with a bluetooth device in his ear seemed to be more interested in two women sitting by the bar, then the restaurant itself.

Re: “A Dated Menu and Uneven Execution Hamper Merchant Street Eatery's Hopes of Lasting

This review seems a bit overly harsh Doug, but if it motivates John to make those "course corrections" then it may be worth the sting he is no doubt feeling. We are enjoying Merchant Street as a welcome alternative in our beloved Tremont, where Lolita has been closed for over a year due to a fire, and Parallax' slipping quality and consistently gritty feeling wine glasses often disappoint vs. delight. Totally agree with you on the mushroom cassoulet being dry (feedback that John appreciated from us). However, anything else I've had on the menu in the dozen or so times being there has been delightful. Make no mistake, I believe John McDonnell HAS broken the "curse" of that location and that, with some tweaks, quality and consistency will win the day for Merchant Street.

The major takeaway here, Doug thinks old people are pussies.

Please skip the nastiness.

Perhaps the demographics of the neighborhood changed. Perhaps the population with disposable income who were more likely to eat/order out left the neighborhood. And perhaps the people who stayed and moved in were less likely to eat/order out.
