Coming Soon – Restaurant Reviews

In Restaurant Reviews on October 22, 2013 at 5:37 PM

As readers may have noticed, many of our recipe ideas are attempts at re-creating a memorable meal that we enjoyed at a restaurant.  Also, we are frequently asked by friends for restaurant recommendations and are pleased to freely provide them. In the past, some of these recommendations have also been posted on Trip Advisor and Yelp, as well as submitted to Zagat’s, for inclusion in the vote tallies for various guides. Accordingly, we will shortly be introducing this category, so please standby.

  2. Dear RWL graduate. The construction “to freely provide” is in some circles considered an error on the level of “ain’t”, though I note that no less a master of the written word than Anthony Trollope makes use of the word quite frequently; and the Gray Lady employs the split infinitive quite regularly. But then, that wrinkled old doyenne makes use of a lot of things I find better done without; color photographs being just one of them.

    Your offerings are such a consistent delight for the eye and the appetite that I would not like to see any of them spoiled as might occur when someone with no sense adds vinegar to a marsala sauce, or puts the soup spoon at the left hand.

    I eagerly await your expansion of the site to include restaurant reviews, and may even suggest a place or two to wander by and sample for your growing public; though some of them might not be a fit place for the family, or for that matter anyone unarmed.

    I am your most humble servant,
    Peadar ban

    • Dear Peadar Ban, to be grouped in the same paragraph as Trollope and the daily rag that claims to contain “all the news that’s fit to print” is quite an achievement for a lad from Inwood. As for the inclusion of the split infinitive, I am of the opinion that there is nothing wrong with it and will continue to gayly split, henceforth. With respect to colored photographs in the “newspaper of record” we are in complete agreement, I put them in the same category as films of Paris shown in Technicolor.
