Re: “Don’t Call It a Goodbye

Will you continue to review at San Francisco Magazine?

Re: “Don’t Call It a Goodbye

I made a point of reading the Express every week so as not to miss your reviews. I always thought you captured not just the Bay Area but the East Bay voice perfectly - enthusiastic, knowledgeable, adventurous, unpretentious. I was especially happy that you would review my favorite hole-in-the-wall places and throw some much needed spotlight on good, hardworking, non-celebrity owners and chefs. I will greatly miss your reviews.

Luke, although we never had the privilege to have met one another. I truly enjoyed all of your commentary and articles ,especially the ones that were about my past business the "BBQ HUT" (smile). But really you will be missed...don't stay away too long just continue to enjoy yourself!

You'll be missed. I've greatly appreciated your searching out of smaller places that would otherwise be completely overlooked. I hope your successor will maintain this ethos, and that you'll imprint some of that perspective to the glossy pages of your new gig. Good luck!

Re: “Don’t Call It a Goodbye

I just saw this. We will miss you! I was going to eat elsewhere in San Leandro but to honor your reviews of the East Bay's thriving Asian restaurant scene I will now go eat again at Noodles Pho Me:

Luke you were an East Bay treasure. NO ONE used the turn of phrase "lush fattiness" like you. San Francisco is lucky to have you. You will be deeply missed.

Best of luck in your new ventures! Thanks for the wealth of tips, including so many curiosity piquers in this final issue, and for putting so many deserving businesses in the spotlight.

Re: “Don’t Call It a Goodbye

Oh goodness you will be missed!
Best of luck with your new gig!
Where can a bay area native with a master's in creative writing and a deep love of all things epicurean apply for your position?

Thank you Luke!

Re: “Don’t Call It a Goodbye

No! You have been great and we need more voices like yours. For you food from non-European origins wasn't "exotic" and you demonstrated a true connection and appreciation of real peoples' food. You will be missed.
