Re: “P&C's Hanna Raskin says Hall family has banished her from their restaurants

Yes, I think a little dose of Pete Wells, Steve Cozzo or Ryan Sutton would awaken some of the complainers to the fact that Ms Raskin has actually been kind in most of her culinary observations. I personally like Hall's Restaurant and the people that run it and would not stay away because it got an unfavorable review. I've read a lot of books which were unfavorably reviewed mainly because I wrote the review. Reviews are guidelines, not edicts. I think we are lucky to have someone who regards her craft as seriously as does Ms. Raskin.

Re: “NICO releases menu

delighted to see the oyster being given such sterling treatment on a menu. I remember years ago reading where a raw oyster embellished with just a drop of single-malt scotch was a molecular marriage of gastronomical Nirvanna. I've tried it. They were right.

Re: “The race to find equity and accountability for short-term rentals

Resident homeowners have every right to expect that their residential neighborhoods will be protected from disruptive commercial encroachment unless it is a function permitted as a result of jumping through the ususual hoops. People who buy or own houses in restricted zones who wish to turn them into STRs should do the research before they invest their cash or their dreams into such an undertaking. I think a lot of the complaints are from people who went in with unreasonable or unfounded expectations of hoping to change the law after the fact or who just did the STR thing anyway and got caught or thwarted.

Re: “Dear Moderate, It's your fault

Fr. Thomas Merton once observed, "The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another."

Re: “We probably shouldn't be shocked that 18 downtown restaurants have closed so far this year

As much at risk financially in opening and running a restaurant are the purveyors around town who supply them. They know the health of a particular eatery's business model sometimes even before the restaurant knows it themselves just by looking at their accounts receivable columns.
