Re: “BBQ Hut May Be the Best Barbecue Joint in the East Bay

You know how you find a great BBQ place and you go back only to be disappointed. Well that is not this place! The food here is consistently great.

Re: “Pleasures of the Flesh-Free

you could eat here, but why would you when nature vegetarian is down the street and light years better without the weird supreme master cult.

Re: “BBQ Hut May Be the Best Barbecue Joint in the East Bay

This is the best place, hands down. Pricy but damn worth every penny.

The baby back ribs are the bomb.com! The sauce is optional as it is not needed on these dry-rubbed ribs as they are perfect sauce-less.

Re: “A New Barbecue Regionalism

Re: “The World Is Your Oyster

We ate at Jack's last night. Spinach salad/fried oysters was good, but the crabcake was ridiculously salty, as was the grilled salmon and cioppino. There was even salt sprinkled on the tops of the jalapeno corn muffins! Great if you're intent upon getting sloshed on big cocktails, otherwise...nope. Very disappointing!

Re: “'Cruelty-Free' Sandwiches at Stag's Lunchette

"Stag's needs to step up its veggie game"? What for? They certainly aren't hurting for business.

Are they operating in violation of some sort of local ordinance? (Don't get any ideas -- and if you do get any such idea, please take it to Berkeley!) ;-)

Meanwhile, I'll take a double-meat Pastrami Reuben. Stags's pastrami is the best I've had anywhere west of the Hudson.

Re: “All You Can Handle

I detest fast food and fast food restaurants, but I have a secret passion for McDonald's hash browns. It's embarassing, but now I don't feel quite so bad.

Re: “Shucking Delicious

Finally went to this place and had great expectations. We had the shrimp, market salad, mussels, fries, a glass of wine and two beers. The shrimp meat was somewhat soft and could have been previously frozen. When the fries came out they were twice fried and warm to the touch. I order another batch and they were great. The meal cost over $80.00 and I was charged for both orders at $ 7.50 a pop, really. Note, for anyone who goes, order at the counter and get a number then the food will arrive. Also, look at the chalk board for the entrees and specials. Finally, Swanns market place is a communal dinning space, order from either kitchen and enjoy.

Re: “Shucking Delicious

I wouldn't expect anything but exceptional and hospitality is a family trait. To tell you the truth, my favorite place to eat in Pacific Grove is at Nani's mother's little patio in her seaside cottage. Cooking is in their DNA. Can't wait to go to Oakland. I cant believe I just said that. But I will. The same light and joy that emanated from the little blond bouncing child I first knew on Cannery Row infuses everything she touches with charm and fun and deliciousness from her books, to her catering and now this, her very own restaurant. Excellent!

Re: “Turning Japanese

Plum was the most pretentious restaurant I've ever been to. Daniel only digs his hole deeper saying SF would have taken to his cuisine. I rest my case.

Re: “How the East Coast (Sausage) Rolls

Mike: I haven't had it recently enough to say "better" for sure, but Boot and Shoe Service, right down the street, often has a very good meatball sandwich on its lunch menu.

Re: “How the East Coast (Sausage) Rolls

If I don't care about the price, where should I go for a better meatball sandwich?

Re: “Hello Again, Giovanni

I just went to Giovanni's and tried to buy a $100 gift certificate as a gift for my friend. The hostess this evening basically said to me that the gift certificates were in a safe and that she was reluctant to go get them because she was all sweaty. I basically replied that it was fine and muttered to myself that I was sure some other restaurant would take my $100 and then went to Revival Bar and spent my money there. MOREOVER, I had a reservation that I made for Giovanni's tomorrow night to celebrate an anniversary and when I got home I decided to cancel it and we will go somewhere else. The hostess' laziness reflects badly on the whole restaurant thus I have decided not to go to Giovanni's any more.
