  1. Agreed - seems like the problem is in the prejudices carried by expense account-type people, rather than the folks dining at Ray's.

    Quick question about those cheddar bay biscuits. Is there crack in those things?
  3. Is Lauren still working there? She's great!
  4. they are called pineapple buns but they don't have pineapple in them!
  5. The statement of one's preference that there is no quality of dining experience that justifies waiting two hours provides no information about Rose's and should be reserved for a different conversation about waits in general. This is distinguishable from a statement that Rose's is not good enough to wait in line for two hours.
  6. It's funny you mention this, Bourdain mentioned this just yesterday on Reddit(!): I would like people really to pay more for top-quality Mexican food. I think it's the most undervalued, underappreciated world cuisine with tremendous, tremendous potential. These are in many cases really complex, wonderful sauces; particularly from Oaxaca, for instance, that date back from before Europe. I'm very excited about the possibilities for that cuisine, and I think we should pay more attention to it, learn more about it, and value it more. This is frankly a racist assumption that Mexican food or Indian food should be cheap. That's not right.
  7. Can you just lay your point(s) in a few sentences? I can't for the life of me figure out what bothers you about Momofuku. It's overpriced? You don't like the chef's attitude? Neither? Both?
  8. it's probably a chinese restaurant. Lamian is just the Chinese pronunciation of ramen - "pulled noodles" as you know.
