Thank you, Ms. First, for an excellent review. But I'm sad that soon, and I hope I'm wrong, you'll be the senior dining critic writing for the NY Times.
I didn't mean to suggest Devra shouldn't 'go-for-the-gold'. I'd just miss her reviews.
Oops... I didn't mean to suggest that Devra shouldn't 'go-for-the-gold'. I'd just miss her reviews here in town. Fine, I'm shellfish!
Hey, has Todd cleaned up his mess at Quincy Market yet?
I was just at Olives. It is over loud, over priced and staff stiff and not knowledgable.
I ordered a drink striaght up and was given an overpour without being asked. At first I thought the restaurant was simple being generous. When the bill came there was a Food item listed. THe bartender couldn not explain it. It took about 5 minutes to locate someone whor could. That turned out to be an upcharge for the overpour that I never asked for. I found the practice deceptive and opaque.
I would never return
No gloves in the pictures? Don't know about you all, but I would not eat food that he just ran his fingers through. Not just because of his own past business problems and less-than-stellar personal life - which could make his fingering my food less appetizing - but that grosses me out with anyone. What if he just scratched his nose or coughed into his hand? Touched other things like foods or door handles? He may say he just washed before prep, but some soap is gross and I don't want the chemicals on my food either. So I won't be dining there....
