Hi Powers that be,
Thanks for writing. I can see that you're confused about how bad food works, so here goes: Bad food is bad regardless of where you drove to it from.
another west side review of an east side establishment.
This place is awesome. Gotta get over the I-25 barrier. Or better yet stay on that side with your Manitoid neighbors.
was going to check out the Le Bistro's Warm Chocolate Fondant -- and just realized they are closed! darn
Really folks - if you haven't tried this new version of NOSH, it's fabulous. You don't have to drive to Denver or Boulder (anymore) for some creative cooking using local ingredients. Well done!
Jo-Mamas Pizza takes criticism very seriously. I feel that any and all comments are valid and must be addressed. Any employee caught handling money and not washing their hands afterwards will be warned and if it happens again, terminated. We are working on keeping conversation in the kitchen to a minimum since it is an open kitchen and customers can see and hear what is going on in the kitchen. I and my staff are working diligently to provide the best food and service to ensure customer satisfaction! Thank you Independent for your honest and open remarks. It will only make us better! Linda, Owner/Manager
You should check out this similar story from Calvin Trillin in the New Yorker:
Interesting coincidence or maybe Bang read about Chang and liked the mystique. Hey, if the food's good, who cares?
Thanks for sharing our hidden gem over in Stetson Hills with the rest of COS. I guess we can expect that place to close soon!
Too bad you have to drive halfway to Kansas to try it out. Pass.
Rudy's rocks! Great people, great food, great local success story!
Seems everyone who posted is confused. The food has similarities if not strictly Kosher. The people share everything in common except politics, land possession, and religion (well, even these get mixed up within the cultures). It is both extremists fighting for their positions and centrists fighting for commonality. I prefer to focus on the centrists and not worry so much about the extremists (except for never turning our collective backs!).
It seems a trend for Israelis to steal the land and birthright of the Palestinian people. I agree with first poster.. , Let's boycott Garbnazo!!
One of the most idiotic comments I've read today... And I read the Gazette!
I'm confused - why does an Israeli/Jew promote a Garbanzo Restauant with food that is Palestinian/Arab. Why does he not promote his own Jewish cuisine?
It seems that Israelis have not only stolen the land that the Palestinians lived on , but are stealing their cuisine as well.
Oh, it's too bad that you didn't enjoy a glass of that wonderful Cabernet.
Did you try the Tuna? It's sushi grade perfect and yummy! The roasted chicken
is pretty tasty as well. My favorite drink is the Flatiron's Cosmopolitan
(probably the best one I have ever had). You can dine on the "patio," very
nice in the summer and there's a fireplace outside when it get's chilly out.
We found the service to be fast, warm & inviting so we highly recommend Flatirons!
We go there every Sunday for breakfast! This is the best breakfast.....and the staff is great!
Their dinners are to die for....so much food to eat...all homemade cooking!
It's about time that there is a great place to eat!
And Feng is great!
We have gone to Dat's Italian twice now. The first time we went there was a wedding reception on the patio and the place was pretty busy. We had decent service and had no problems. My husband had the lasagna and loved it. So, tonight we decided to go back. The experience was very different from the first. My husband arrived a minute before I did and stood waiting for someone to help him. No one even looked his way until I arrived even tho there were 4 people behind the counter talking. Then we were seated. The waitress did ask for our drink orders and we told her we needed a minute to decide what we wanted to eat. We finally had to tell someone we wanted to order after our waitress walked by 4 times without asking. Our food came promptly, but we had to ask for more water. We ordered the spaghetti pie and a meatball sangwich. They were good but the sides left something to be desired. They were not very busy and the crew was standing around doing nothing until the owner came up front. Then they looked busy. A woman came in that was obviously a regular customer and she had everyone's attention. It's not that we need to be hovered over, but we do like someone to pay attention to some detail when we are dining in. If we wanted to serve ourselves we would have stayed home.
My girlfriend and I went based on Matt's review for lunch. Maya was not there and the place smelled wonderful.
There is no lunch menu and the price for my sandwich was $10.95. It came with very little lamb, a small amount of lettuce, chopped tomato and a lovely sauce, but it was served on a dinner plate with nothing else and it was skimpy. My girlfriend's dish was $12.95, it came with what looked like buckwheat pancakes, rolled up and cut into slices - these were cold in the middle. It was very tasty but she said she couldn't pin down what the meat was, it could have been beef, chicken or lamb.
The service was slow, and while we were offered rosewater lemonade and tea in tiny golden glasses, our food took over 45 minutes to arrive.
Overall we were less than impressed and thought that the prices were way out of line for a lunch and the food that we were served.
This is spectacular food and easily surpasses previous Cafe 36 menus. I can't say enough good things about what Amuze has brought to the FAC. The mushroom crepe is a favorite of mine, but everything is top-notch.
Hey Matt! I went on Tuesday, per your poolside recommendation. My friend and I shared the yebeg alecha (lamb in spices) and foul; along with the rosewater lemonade. It was actually perfect that everything was slow-going; it added to the purpose of my visit. We ended the meal with a Katayef (pastry) and coffee. Divine indeed. Great meeting you.
