It is good, but you should go to the Benihana in greentree if you want to meet some famous people. The bartender told me he was single handedly responsible for Antonio Brown's breakout season last year, he teaches some sort of jujitsu or something. his evidence...cell phone picture with him, wallace and brown. ( I was trapped in conversation till the rest of my party arrived)

Oh yeah, I think his name is Marty. He'll talk your ear off :lol:

Went to the BnD'z Burgerz and Dogz in South Park (I think cheesesteakwithegg mentioned it earlier in the thread) and I give it two thumbs up :thumb: :thumb:


Yeah, I really like that place. Would really like to see them add milkshakes to the menu though. Can never go wrong with burger - fries - shake.

kenny the kangaroo had pho for the first time at lulus and it was pretty good. for many years, this gentlman has avoided asian food because of various sterotypes, but its enjoyable food.

any suggestions for pho?

I don't think so, but it is still really good. I'd take the Original Pancake House over DeLuca's.

Yes. Fly to Southern California and visit one the many Phở So 1 outposts. In fact, I'm feeling a little anxious for some pho myself... might head out for a bowl of their #1 Phở Đặc Biệt Xe Lửa.

Did Burgatory today with co-workers. Ordered the Waygu burger with some sort of dry rub and farmhouse cheddah.

Think they slightly overcooked it, but overall it wasn't bad. A solid B+.

If I ordered the Waygu and they overcooked it, i'd probably send it back.

They serve burgers of Waygu beef? Oooo, Anthony Bourdain would hate that place. Bourdain has a rant in one of his books about Waygu burgers and how they’re a sign of a rip-off restaurant. The whole point of Waygu beef is that it is wonderfully and delicately marbled with fat. That fine marbling is that gives Waygu beef its almost melt-in-your-mouth texture. But when you’re grinding beef for burgers, marbling is pointless and fat content can be adjusted to whatever level you want. If you want fattier patties, you just throw some extra suet into the grinder.
