Re: “Chef Michael Toscano serves near-perfect food at Le Farfalle

First visit and this observation nailed it:

Like a date that starts out hot and heavy, but then snubs you for someone else halfway through the party — Was it something I said? — on one occasion, my once-attentive waiter vanished shortly after the first course. Varying runners made sure the job ultimately got done, but the contrasting attention levels were hard to ignore.

Re: “Chef Michael Toscano serves near-perfect food at Le Farfalle

Told you guys months ago, prior to his opening, that this place would rule. Perla was one of my favorites when he was there. The polpo is some of the best I've ever had. Mike was never a halfway kinda guy. Expect the best from this place every time and don't expect it to eventually slack off like many of the other places here in the Chuck. Dios te bendiga por el Polpo Michael. Permite tener algunos menudo en el menú.

Re: “Chef Michael Toscano serves near-perfect food at Le Farfalle

I have been to restaurants from NYC to Paris. 2 star restaurants in Italy and delicious restaurants in Napa. Le Farfalle can comfortably fit in compete and yes surpass most of them. The wine is extraordinary the food is without competition and the service is like eating at a family reunion.

and did they get rid of all the asbestos that caused the building to be shut down years ago?

These appear to be the most uncomfortable chairs ever...and the prices are not too easy on the wallet either.

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: “60 Bull Cafe's large sandwich menu is a welcome addition to Harleston Village

I ate here 2 months ago. The saltiest salad I've ever had (didn't know salads could be salty), and the fries were limp, greasy and inedible.

The prices seemed high, especially when the city has a dearth of similar restaurants of the same - if not better - quality (I'm looking at you, Ted's)

Re: “Chef April Robinson uses her powers for good at Butter Tapas

The back dining pops with elegance preparing you for the beautiful presented food. The wine list is a great selection and now cocktails also prepared by Chef April Robinson aka "Wonder Woman".

Re: “Chef April Robinson uses her powers for good at Butter Tapas

There is a significant amount of seating in the back area. The elegance, beautifully presented food, and wine selection! Definitely Not a grab and go bakery.

Butter Tapas adds an elegant feel to the area! The back seating area has a romantic nostalgia that transports you to European Village! The watermelon was different but tasted heavenly!

Re: “Lamb ribs and tagliatelle shine at Butcher & Bee's dinner service

"The smoked crispy potatoes ($10) were up next and were initially off-putting and too smoky. That is until I realized there was an avocado-lime chimichurri sauce beneath the potatoes. When enjoyed together the avocado provided a great equalizer to the strong flavor, each bite a satisfying crunch with subtle hints of lime."

In your opinion, was this an adequate substitute for delicious fries?

Re: “The experimental menu at Harold's Cabin is one of the most exciting in the city

"Even if bison's not your pleasure, the accompanying house-made salt and vinegar chips are reason enough to make the trip."

So, One can infer that delicious fries are not served at this establishment?

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

They've done a great job on the renovation. Interior looks like a Jack Dempsey NYC steak house; you feel like you're in a little place in Brooklyn, like that Italian restaurant where Michael Corleone wacks Sollozzo and Captain McCluskey.

On that note, a pasta dish would be nice.

High prices and small portions are doing wonders for Charleston's restaurant scene...

Hey Pronghorn - I'm one of the partners, and can confirm through the sheer volume ingested that the fries are, in fact, goddamned delicious. Insanely so.

Go back and get the brick chicken again. One of my favorite dishes, always crispy and delish!
