Great bar, fantastic food, bringing back East Bay Street one customer at a time...

Re: “'Top Chef' winner Kristen Kish's Charleston restaurant plans on hold

It's no wonder there are staffing issues in Charleston. Owners want to work you like slaves and pay $9.00/hr. Charleston has the WORST pay I've ever seen and to top it all off...look at how many restaurants have been fined for labor violations.

And by that, I mean they already charge enough to do that. This is definitely an exciting article though. Less of these crappy restaurants that pay for reviews, the better.

^^They already do that. High prices, small portions. Case in point, any of Reitz's restaurants...

Re: “'Top Chef' winner Kristen Kish's Charleston restaurant plans on hold

It's time to go to the tip-free model. Restaurant owners should charge enough to pay a living wage to all staffers instead of forcing guests to cough up a 20% add-on to support the geisha/gigolo system of table service.

Re: “When it comes to cocktails, is it time to kill the word craft?

Yes I know it is the antithesis of a craft beer, Lew, but as for your line," but if the beer's not good, the brewery won't survive", how do you explain the raging popularity among hipsters of PBR? This isn't about quality at all, it's about fads and trends. Sure, real beer aficionados will understand the distinctions, but they make up a small piece of the market.

Re: “Little Jack's Tavern looks like a recipe for success

For those of us who live far away, would you consider sharing your recipe for the heirloom tomato and peach salad?

Re: “When it comes to cocktails, is it time to kill the word craft?

No, actually, that's not at all what I'm saying. Some of it's about exclusivity, but if the beer's not good, the brewery won't survive. Slagging off on hipsters doesn't help, either...and it's pretty three years ago.

Re: “Our short guide to 'za in the Holy City

I've been going to D'Allesandro's since 2006. It's not as good as it used to be. I believe the ownership has changed. It's still the same wood fire oven. Much is the same. But it's not quite as good as it used to be. But don't get me wrong. It's still probably my favorite.

Re: “When it comes to cocktails, is it time to kill the word craft?

This Bryson fella couldn't be any more right. The "craft" thing is a marketing tool used to lure in stupid hipsters. They don't care if the beer tastes good, as long as it is made by castrated monks singing a Ray Charles/Adele medley in a small pot that has been used since it was discovered at Goodwill. The "craft" moniker is to give the product the "exclusivity" that the hipster craves.

I mean, just ask Scott Shor. He makes a killing doing this at Charleston's biggest d-bag magnet.
