Re: “Barsa Tapas Lounge & Bar

Went to Barsa last saturday evening. Busy, but not unmanageable as is often the case on King Street. My friend and I sat at the bar and had fantastic service from Brittany. Drinks came promptly and were generous. As the small plates began to arrive (we were hungry and ordered seven of them), other wait staff pitched in to keep things moving with fresh utensiles and plates....We had a great evening thanks to a kitchen who can produce terrific food and a staff who cares enough to provide great service. Run, don't walk....Just don't take my corner of the bar.

Re: “RIP, Marian McPartland

She brought out the best in a piano and in the people lucky enough to be on her show and play with her. Legend is absolutely correct.

Re: “Rutledge Cab Co. pulls into Wagener Terrace

Great place to gather for a drink and good casual and not so casual food. Brian Lindsay gets the accolades for pulling this balance off every day.....

Re: “Is it time to forego approachability and get back to making masterpieces?

Well written and well thought out. However, there is one more critical thing to remember about dining out: Regardless of the "haute" (or not) level of the cuisine, diners do NOT go out to restaurants because they are hungry. They go out because they want an experience, good service, and well prepared fare regardless of the level of estblishment they choose. Every successful restaurant knows this, and the ones that stay in business practice this every day.

Re: “James Beard nominees to be announced in Charleston

Thanks Mayer! That's one less ticket I'll have to worry about.

Re: “Is Peninsula Grill's sinful experience still relevant or a relic of a richer time?

Thanks for reminding us that something can never be out of fashion if it represents fashion itself. Don't change a thing and I'll gladly put on that jacket for dinner.
