Re: “Emily Hahn and Warehouse are parting ways

I wish Emily the best of luck!! I watched her on Top Chef. Strangely enough, I met her at the nail place I go to while we were getting pedicures and I recognized her! Of course no one else did. Meaning the customers. Hey, I'm a foodie. So I told her I watched her on the show and we chatted. And then went to the restaurant and thought the food was very good.

I hope she stays in Charleston and lands in a good place.

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

Thanks Ms. Wolf, I'm glad to see you figured out how to use the thesaurus for "small". To complain about the "price point" when your review mentions a shrimp roll for $11 and a whole chicken at $19 is laughable. Just order the shrimp roll at much more casual Leon's or the chicken at Edmund's if need to confirm.

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

Having recently been to Goulette, I agree about the limitations of the menu. Everything we had was good, but not exciting enough to make us regulars. Those imposing wooden banquettes at Lana served very well at limiting the noise...something I definitely noticed at Goulette. And if us pre-geezers are their market, it could be a problem. On another note: be careful about those AARP comments, girl. Some of us are cooler than you know and actually read your reviews, although now we are on notice that we are not your target demographic.

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

The AARP comment is completely out of line. Someone's bio recently said:"One of the few enduring traditions of human culture, stories when told with the proper cadence, language and skill have the power to move and inspire our minds, our hearts and even our souls". What is inspiring about insinuating that people over a certain age couldn't possibly be savvy in their food choices and certainly not in the same league as you?

Vanessa, go ahead, show your parents the snide, disparaging AARP comment and see what they think. Will they chide you for your unnecessary bitchiness or give you another participation trophy for your shelf?

Re: “20 Charleston spaces, 88 F&B concepts

I think 103 N Market was also Bull & Finch at some point. Also, after the Hoagie Haven left King St, they re-opened at 41 George.

Re: “A sobering look at Charleston's food changes over 20 years

I loved this article. Please continue to talk about how we pull back from Disney-fication, with new hotels going up at an alarming rate, "best of" awards overwhelming us, the work-force needed to sustain the increased interest unable to afford to live within walking distance, parking being prohibitively expensive for workers, and mass transit non-existent.

Re: “Coastal Crust offers creative offerings in a rowdy outdoor setting

Can people, including writers please stop using the term "That said"!!!! It is so annoying and wrong grammar and even TV reporters are using it. You already said it! Why use the term!!!!! It's like saying "you know" or "like" or "um" all the time. It is wrong. Quit it already. Oh, People also use "That being said". That is stupid too. Enough. As far as the review. No way am I waiting 40-50 minutes for to get my pizza . Those people should get their act together before opening up a place.

There is a place in West Hollywood near UCLA called 800 Degrees. They have an 800 Degree wood oven. Very cool. You go in and it is cafeteria style. You get a tray, you go to the first person, and you get the bare pizza, and the person puts the sauce on, next you go to the cheese section, next you go to certain toppings, next you go to meats, etc. You get to the end, and they have sides, like Burrata. You pay. They give you a number. You sit. And in 5 minutes, you get your pizza. 800 Degrees cooks the pizza in 5 minutes because it is so hot! And it is delicious! Charleston could use a place like that.

Re: “The State Ports Authority move and what it means for Fleet Landing

I have visited Fleet Landing often over the past 3 years, and each time the food is excellent and the service is friendly. I'm not a tourist so I'm not blinded by the amazing view :)

Re: “The Americano restaurant in Mt. Pleasant is for sale

Unfortunate that this place never caught on as it had a nice evening bar vibe. The food was good, but as someone earlier wrote, they struggled with authenticity. First time I went for brunch, the waitress couldn't explain to me why a Cuban restaurant didn't serve Cuban style coffee (Cafe Cubano).

Re: “Goulette opens with a casual, grill-heavy menu

Maybe cassoulet in the winter. That's when it should be served. Not in the summer.

Re: “The Americano restaurant in Mt. Pleasant is for sale

The place sucked ! Food was just ok atmosphere was good prices were not to bad but it was the food. The menu was missing the Cuban feel it seemed more Mexican then Cuban. Had it really stuck with the authentic Cuban food I think it would've done really well. As a local I can tell you other locals so much as just another Mexican restaurant trying to Petray itself as Cuban.

Re: “The Americano restaurant in Mt. Pleasant is for sale

Maybe more people would support there business if they supported the other small local businesses that provided them services by paying their over due bills to them :)
