If it is Portland-esque, it has to be good!

Re: “Potato Potato gets rolling and more

There was nothing about La'au's going on hiatus. Is this really happening, and when?

Re: “15C, Rustlers and Joey's Pizza

I've been to Joey's; it's good and worth patronizing.

Crowne Plaza wasn't much; nouveau riche Texans now give it a gag-worthy name. Ella-gon-tay. Pretentious to the max. I'll never go, not with a 10 commandments plaque in the lobby; monied Texans are the acme of greed and hypocrisy. They need to choose, are they a hotel or a church; make up your mind. Better yet, go back to Texas.

Re: “Despite a few flaws, the Pepper Tree does wonderful things to a steak

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you call the power plant a blight... I call it a delight... virtually pollution free and keeping Colorado Springs Utility costs down....the clouds of steam that fill the sky provide a variety of shapes for those with imagination.... hurrah to the plant and BOO to those who consider it a blight... and this comment from an artist who realizes that there is more to beauty than what is on the surface.

Re: “Go omakase, all-you-can-eat at Sushi Ring II

We go to sushi ring and sushi ring II at least once a month and have developed a real love for both restaurants and it's people. Best sushi in town, bar none.

Re: “Bayou meets Rockrimmon at Momma Pearl's Cajun Kitchen

As someone from Southern Louisiana, I am ashamed to to call this place a "Cajun" restaurant. They can't even spell "Laissez les bon temps roulez" correctly on their wall! The shrimp is NOT gulf shrimp, but a frozen product. "It's not legal to ship Gulf Shrimp out of Louisiana," the owner told us on our September visit. This is complete bull. I order Gulf shrimp from cajungrocer all the time. Secondly, the staff was terrible! They were more concerned about the guest ordering drinks and appetizers through the window to the bar next door, than they were in taking our orders and getting our drink refills. Furthermore, they knew NOTHING about the menu. "Chef"Brunet stood outside the door smoking and talking to someone, who I can only assume was a buddy, for the entire 45 minutes we were at the restaurant.

I order the gumbo, a pathetic soup of chewy shrimp, beef broth, and maybe a 1/4 cup of rice. My husband had the roast beef po-boy made on a hoagie roll that was so stale you couldn't bite into it, and beef so cheap and poorly seasoned it wouldn't even qualify for a fast-food restaurant. The accompanying "au jus" was tin-tasting canned beef broth. The menu also include a jambalya that boasted a tomato based sauce. Not self-respected Cajun would advertise tomato based sauces as Cajun cuisine. This is creole cuisine from the New Orleans area.

After our hopeful attempt to find a restaurant that could serve our beloved south-west Louisiana favorites, we left with, appropriately, a retracted bill and some free beignets for our trouble. They should have kept there flat, chewy treats for some other gullible customer.

Re: “Mountain Grounds Coffee, Pateros Creek Brewing, China Town Restaurant

China Town's hairgel hot and sour soup is perfect! I have always loved the thicker consistency. China Town please never change your hot n sour soup!

Re: “Da Mi Korean, Larkburger, Marco's Pizza

I don't believe that much is organic. On their website, click on the "keeping it natural" tab under "about us." (…) One of our grievances when we reviewed them last may (…) was that they served commercial meat, which felt a bit like greenwashing considering the other care for sustainability.
