A Reply From 9 North

I received a polite comment about my 9 North post…from the chef! I sent him the link because it’s tacky to criticize him behind his back. To his credit, he was nice, and didn’t tell me to stick my amateurish, asinine comments. He also pointed out that his steaks are indeed 21-day dry aged from […]

Klonopin For Sale

New restaurants should be like Avis in their old commercials: “We try Harder.” And although the folks at this very new (they opened last Tuesday) Wayne restaurant Klonopin For Sale, certainly tried hard, it obviously is still a work in progress. Our waiter told us that two of the waiters quit on Saturday at 5:00pm, so I certainly will not ding them for being overwhelmed, Klonopin gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release. And even if it isn’t true, Klonopin alternatives, we knew what we were getting into. After all, it just opened, Klonopin long term, plus it’s a pretty ballsy story, Klonopin interactions, so he gets credit anyway. The remaining waiters really hustled, and someone recruited a 12-year-old kid, Klonopin description, who shows great promise setting a table.

What I didn’t find to be lacking was the service, Buying Klonopin online over the counter, which was confused but earnest. And the presentation was excellent and interesting, so no problems there, Klonopin For Sale. I didn’t like the fact that both fish dishes were overcooked, while the steak and lamb were cooked perfectly, Klonopin natural. That tells me that whoever is running the kitchen either doesn’t have a handle on what is, Klonopin overnight, at least to me, the most important part of cooking besides cleanliness . , Klonopin samples. . Klonopin For Sale, cooking both fish and meat to the correct temperature . Klonopin canada, mexico, india, . . or that he just isn’t too interested in fish — which is fine, cheap Klonopin, but don’t put it on the menu.

But on to the meal. Buy Klonopin from canada, We started with crab cakes — excellent, served with a simple mustardy sauce — that were a bit small. A weird “Lobster Strudel” that I really didn’t like, but nobody else complained, so maybe I’m the one with no taste, Klonopin For Sale. A well-made onion tart, taking Klonopin, and a mushroom risotto (I can’t resist risotto). Australia, uk, us, usa, The risotto was well executed but a bit on the simple
side. . .just sautéed mushrooms and rice, online Klonopin without a prescription. Klonopin For Sale, I enjoyed it, but it should have been a more complex dish. The menu says “Wild Mushroom Risotto, Klonopin for sale, Duck Confit, Port Syrup.” Not a chance. They were out of the duck confit appetizer, kjøpe Klonopin på nett, köpa Klonopin online, and obviously, Real brand Klonopin online, there was no duck available for the risotto. And port. Nope.

The aforementioned steak, no prescription Klonopin online, which they claim on the menu to be “dry-aged, Buy cheap Klonopin no rx, ” was perfectly cooked, but if it was dry-aged, it was in dog years, buy Klonopin no prescription. The rack of lamb was, once again, a simple preparation but obviously good enough that my brother-in-law finished it before I could snag a piece, Klonopin For Sale. He is a card-carrying carnivore, Klonopin coupon, so I will trust his judgment. But how do you screw up salmon. I could tell it was overdone from across the table, Klonopin photos. My sister-in-law, Klonopin use, a much, much nicer person than I, said, Klonopin brand name, “oh, Klonopin from canadian pharmacy, I like my fish well-done.” And my pancetta-wrapped monkfish. Klonopin For Sale, What a nice idea — and one that I will steal quite soon. But it just doesn’t fly when the monkfish is as crisp as the pancetta. Okay, purchase Klonopin online no prescription, I am exaggerating slightly, Klonopin blogs, but it was dry and tough.

Wayne, New Jersey, order Klonopin online overnight delivery no prescription, is not a hotbed of fine dining. My Klonopin experience, If these folks can iron out the significant kinks in the service (and figure out how to cook fish), they will succeed, and I will return, Klonopin price, coupon. The prices were reasonable, it’s BYOB (always a wonderful thing), the decor is stark but not unpleasant (decorated with the chef’s girlfriend’s artwork, which isn’t bad), and they have a small room off to one side that can be used for private parties, Klonopin For Sale. I also would suggest to the owner-chef that he come out of the kitchen and take a look at the dining room every once and a while. Order Klonopin no prescription, The service was pretty ragged on his first Saturday night — so bad that some people left without eating — but I didn’t see him once. I am not owed a chat with the chef simply because I have eaten at his restaurant, but come on, buy Klonopin from mexico, on your first weekend. Klonopin without prescription, Ask how everything was. Klonopin For Sale, I would have told the truth, and then I’d come back!

I think that Mr. Bernstein is a serious chef trying to create a serious restaurant, and I am going to take his food seriously. That means holding the experience to the standard that he is trying to reach, but hasn’t achieved yet. I think that he will get there..

Union Square Cafe

What do you say about a restaurant that does everything well? One of my (many) pet peeves is the lack of professionalism in most, if not all, suburban restaurants and bars. And our dinner (at the bar, of course) last night at the 22-year-old Union Square Cafe highlighted the painful differences between what we in […]

There Is No Accounting For Taste In Barbecue . . .

. . . including my own! We were shiftless and lazy last night and decided to get some takeout barbecue from a local restaurant that has received some positive reviews in the press and glowing comments from a few local bloggers. Barbecue is one of my favorite foods, and I take it fairly seriously. I […]

My Worst Restaurant Meal

This is a tough one. If I were to be objective about every restaurant meal that I have eaten, I could find something wrong with every joint in the world. From unspeakably dirty bathrooms to rancid butter or short-and-curlies in the soup to slightly overdone steak to fois gras with just a bit too much […]

Garden Cafe (Brooklyn)

I will eventually write a real, but amateurish review of this lovely little restaurant, but for the time being, I had the best venison I have ever had outside of New Zealand. The meal was impressive, reasonably priced, and the tiny kitchen puts to shame some of the most highly regarded restaurants in New York.Garden […]

Hi-jinks In The Kitchen, Or Hazing? It Depends

Here is an interesting article by Lesley Balla at the James Beard Foundation about the sometimes violent, but always amusing culture of restaurant kitchens. I like the quotation at the end from the woman chef, who sounds like she misses the good-old days, before Human Resources witch hunts.


My wife and I have been to Picholine several times, and we always have enjoyed the experience. Before its recent remodel, the restaurant reminded me of a genteel, subtle brothel — but in a good way! And the food always was excellent, especially the lobster in vanilla brown butter. Actually, that was an incredible dish, […]

I Am In A (Local) Restaurant Rut

We had another crappy meal last night. And I chose the word “crappy” carefully. My wife has told me that using the words that came out of my mouth during the dinner would not be appropriate. Lest you think that I am a curmudgeon whose only joy is in criticizing others, I would have happily […]

Underage Drinking In Restaurants

Frank Bruni, The NY Times food critic, also blogs in the newspaper’s Diner’s Journal. Last week he wrote about the appropriateness of  close-to-legal customers being served alcohol, and linked to an interesting article in the Detroit Free Press. Both are worth reading, but I can’t help thinking that the issue is simple and clear. Regardless […]
