Re: “A 'bleeding' veggie burger lands in Mt. Pleasant next week

Now I wonder if it is the same as the Impossible Burger that I saw on the Walhberg's reality show. They were in SF and tasted a veg burger that tasted exactly like meat. The company is located in Redwood City. They took Paul Walhberg to the facility. They showed him how it is made. They told him currently they sold only to a small amount of accounts, but were gearing up to expand. They sent a sample to Mark as he was golfing at Pebble Beach. Yes, Markie Mark has come a long way. He took one bite and could not believe it. It tastes exactly like beef!! Not like a veggie burger. That's the point of the whole thing. Not to taste like a veggie burger. He asked the head of sales if they needed an investor!

I'm still waiting for a Wahlburgers to open in Charleston. They said after tasting this Impossible Burger, they want to put in all their chains. So I am very very curious if this is the same product.

You can already get the Beyond Burger at Whole Foods. It's pretty good, especially if you are used to veggie burgers from the freezer section of your grocery. I had one for dinner last night. But the Impossible Burger is supposed to be even better.

Re: “1Kept's menu is like a Top 40 list of twenty-teen hits

I know where I am not going. It looks and sounds awful. I'm going to Los Angeles next month and I'm going to eat some real good food. What happened to simple straightforward food???

Re: “Background checks and the business of Charleston hospitality staffing

Exactly. Look how they try and sell us security solutions when a fancy place like that could certainly pay more for reliable dishwashers. Instead of relying on fancy security background check services that they pay out the ass for, why don't they just pay more?

Easy Fix.

Minimum wage in California is 15 an hour. Living downtown is just as expensive so I don't want to hear that crap.

You truly get only desperate people sometimes if you want to pay below 15 an hour to someone living downtown.

Could you take down the condescendence tone a notch? Maybe a vacation... And come back with the humbleness your profession deserves.

this 53 year old man was a convicted felon at 19 years old.at least six felony convictions
some so violent he left a man in a wheelchair for the rest of his life....you cant tell me that there is no one out there to do these jobs....maybe lowering your profit margins and giving these people a good wage might get you the people you need.shame on bennett hospitality and there hiring process for this. god bless every hard working employee in the f and b industry

Re: “Here's how to help Chef Shane Whiddon's family right now

Thank you for posting the links. Please keep this up for as long as possible. I would love to see enough raised to pay for his two boys education one day. He was a really nice guy and I can not fathom the pain and heartache his wife and family must be experiencing.

Re: “When will Charleston restaurants reach peak ampersand?

And in response to Daniel Brock, above, "Post and Courier" came about from the merger of two papers, hence there is meaning and history behind it.

Re: “When will Charleston restaurants reach peak ampersand?

I was just commenting on this a few days ago. What is up with this? And is there any meaning in the two paired names but a cliche-ish rhythm? Odd, for sure.

To be fair, it's Post AND Courier, no ampersand.

Re: “The smoky meats are promising, but some of Swig & Swine's dishes could use improvement

Our waitress was short with words, sighing and frowning. We ate on Sunday afternoon, the 20th of Aug, 2017 against the front windows. She seemed bothered to have to answer any questions about the food. She rolled her eyes a few times, but weren't sure if she caught wind of our flatulence. We never saw her smile.

The brussell sprouts were horrid. They were only cooked over a flame for minutes, never pre-steamed or boiled. The brussell sprout quality also lacked. They were tough and chewy, not to be reckoned with and seem to have been grown in someone's local garden. Not up to restaurant quality. The "Hash" and Brunswick stew tasted like poor quality Chef Boyardee. Very awkward cafeteria sweet.

The meat was gorgeous and delicious, as it should be, but the waitress finalized our judgement when we watched her grab a glass of warm lemonade from someone else's table and give it to our daughter. Creepy. We would have confronted her gently, but we were in awe of the whole service situation.

Still chewing on the Brussell sprouts,

Your truly.

Re: “Goulette plays it safe with a salad and duck fat frites formula

What a snarky little bitch. Do you think you will be young or your age forever? Just wait, your time will come. And then YOU will see what it feels like when a smart ass throws shade on you. SIDE EYE. P.S. I'm sure you are being hotly pursued by the Michelin Guide. NOT.
