Re: “First Look: Brooks Reitz gives a tour of Saint Alban coffee shop

I haven't tried this place but I went to Leon's and they did a solid job.

mat you hate so much about here why don't you just move? You hate the country, the voting system, the economic system, the state, the city, the people that live here and evidently you even hate the coffee shops, even snooty ones that are probably paying people a lot more than minimum wage to sling dirty water. Why not just pack up and move to some communist country with good coffee? Like Venezuela?

Re: “From humble ingredients to his love of Valentina hot sauce, Sean Brock gives an inside look at Minero

My wife and I were very disappointed. The guacamole was nondescript. We expected alot more flavor. Tacos were fine, not overly special. I grabbed some napkins from the bar as I didnt see any and that was when the waiter decided to tell us their was a drawer in the table with napkins and silverware. Sorry dude not psychic. i will say it is a great room. Hopefully the rest steps up to match.

Re: “Diggity Doughnuts moves into Ike & Alice's

"But the opening of the new shop will not end the life of Diggity Doughnuts food truck. Sloan plans to keep both businesses operational, but she says, "I'll probably need to hire some people."

I sure hope she plans on paying her new hires 15.00 an hour ..otherwise who does she think she is trying to grow her food business.

Re: “First Look: Brooks Reitz gives a tour of Saint Alban coffee shop

Amazing transformation of that space. We toured it years ago to consider for our office, but it was windowless and ugly. Appreciate that these guys had the vision to change it into something lovely.

Re: “Teach the Need trains high school students hospitality skills

how to get a dead end job in a kitchen downtown, so you can tell everyone "your going to be a somebody" then you get fired within a year when they rotate their staff for newer wet behind the ears employees. The next job you get will be in a doucheyer dining establishment, if you have become a alchoholic by then well then good news you have something in common with the rest of the staff, if covered in arm tatoos then you will be stuck in the kitchen and can not be a waiter/waitress, but thats ok then you wont get fired from your subhuman wage job when you go berserk because you can not live off the measley tips, when you could have got a job from a more fair employer like walmart, or mcdonalds, but they pee test there..

Re: “The Drawing Room at The Vendue blends fresh ingredients with gastronomical artistry

Love this review! Sous Chef Nick McNevin has brought a wealth of Sidney, Australia, and New York City style to Charleston, as well as a wildly creative flair for flavors, colours, and combinations. My last meal there (when McNevin was the chef on duty) was as memorable as any trip to an exotic foreign country.

Re: “First Look: Brooks Reitz gives a tour of Saint Alban coffee shop

Are you out of your minds!?! What kind of location is this for operating a business? How many cups of coffee can they sell to pay the staff to hang around? My grandmother would have said "it must be a Mafia laundry." I'm with her, what other reason can there be for throwing so much money into the toilet?

"...we now have eight independent coffee shops with the opening of Saint Alban."

And not a single decent coffeehouse.

Wondering if these guys will go the Kudu route and eliminate outlets and make this NOT the "work from home" spot northside needs dearly.

Re: “Pastry Chef Judy Papadimitriou calls on her elders to figure out a classic Greek cookie recipe

These sound "yummy". I can't wait for Judy Pops to be offering these through her new baking business, "Pies, Cakes & S'mores". If you haven't tasted her baking, you've really missed something sweet!

Re: “With improvement, Union Provisions' dishes could match its stunning façade

you guys should really stop picking on the opening chef. I don't think it would be his fault that the menu is not being executed to its fullest potential, now and back then ... the opening chef as mentioned has been absent for many months now and has moved on to greener pastures. The fault you guys are finding with the culinary execution of said dishes lies solely in the present kitchen with the present staff has full accountability! please remember a chef is as only as good as his or her last bowl of soup.
