Re: “Lokal offers a melting pot of international flavors with mixed results

In Czech language, it is spelled lokál. And are there no Czech dishes on the menu? The dishes you have mentioned do not look Czech.

Re: “The Fat Radish's Ben Towill will develop new hotel restaurant

Have y'all gone crazy? Are you each day drinking together somewhere and randomly attacked this benign article en masse?
This little nugget is extremely interesting, and answers a lot of questions many had about that space, and what Towill will ultimately wind up doing down here.

Re: “Caviar & Bananas releases new salad menu

That's not what I'm talking about, Elise Ladew. There was a section of the City Paper called "The Scene". It showed important people celebrating White Privilege at important restaurants and bars. It was always informative, and the writing was top-shelf.

Re: “Caviar & Bananas releases new salad menu

Compared to other versions (Austin Scene, Nashville Scene, etc.) it was painfully embarrassing. Other cities have nightlife - Charleston has restaurants and garden parties.

Re: “Caviar & Bananas releases new salad menu

Whatever happened to "The Scene" (that Erin Perkins used to run)?

That was excellent rich white people out on the town coverage. It needs to come back.

You jest, warwit, but up-and-comer Viraj Naik has his finger on the pulse of Charleston's culinary scene. This kid is going places. He makes Kinsey Gidick look like Kinsey Gidick.

Plenty of available locations on James Island for yet another one, hint, hint.

Re: “Home Team BBQ offers a peek at its Williman Street digs

Light Industrial zoning and pretty basic 50/25 height district requirements. While it is the popular thing to say right now, I don't think you'll actually be able to blame the BAR process for delays, Kinsey.

Re: “Caviar & Bananas releases new salad menu

If anyone tries to tell you that absolutely AMAZING things aren't happening on the Charleston culinary scene, simply laugh in their face and show them this news. That'll shut 'em up quick.

Home Team can do no wrong in my book, love that place. It will be quite the brisket battle down there when John Lewis BBQ opens.

Re: “Home Team BBQ offers a peek at its Williman Street digs

Home Team Brisket = Good. I could prob eat it 2 -3 times a week with a side of that poppy seed slaw and wash it down with a ice cold brew or 2 and have no complaints. Good thing for my waistline that I do not work at City Paper.

Re: “Maverick Southern Kitchens considers buyers, strategic partners

The mere thought of strolling into SNOB for a cocktail and a bite and having Billy Hall rush over and become all smarmy like he is in Halls just gives me the real heebie jeebies. God, then will we have to have his mail order Allen Bros steaks here as well?

Re: “Bistro Toulouse doesn't need to play Edith Piaf to prove its proficiency in French

Well, I feel I need to establish a massive point of order here: the Folly Road Huddle House™ is operating on a different, more elevated level than any other in the chain. That's the reason I conduct all my business meetings there daily. Also, as I've said recently, I saw Sean Brock™ in there, but he was heavily disguised and surrounded by a coterie of Blackwater bodyguards (which makes me think he might be making a move). This notion is reinforced by the helicopter pad they're installing on the roof.

Perhaps this article's author, who also owns McCready's, can shed some light on this situation.

Prong, always such a comedian. Huddle House is the high bar standard for all Chuck's restaurants and as you know its impossible to reach by any of them, quit clowning around. I heard Billy Hall might want to buy them.

Would you say that they're almost as good as Huddle House™ fries?

Prong, I have had them and they were très délicieux. I dipped them in my soup.

I looked at their menu.

"Hand Cut Frites with Aioli Sautéed Seasonal Greens 5 each"

Are these fries delicious?

Re: “The Fat Radish's Ben Towill will develop new hotel restaurant

ImFromHere, you write "Who has been speculating about Ben Towill's plans? Nobody I know."

Actually, you commented (and used a racial slur in the process) on our second story about him in November

Okay I apologize to writer Kinsey Gidick. Your carefully-researched reporting just reads like a press release. My mistake.
