Curb tasted chalky, was lacking in presentation. Does not offer a toothless dining option. Would not return.

MrEricSir: Whatever happened to restaurant critics staying anonymous? Is that not how they operate anymore?

Some restaurants (especially the ones where a good review can make or break them) have caught on to when reviewers come in and what they look like.

I recently read a local restaurant review where the critic figured that the restaurant was onto to her, since the manager kept hovering over her, kissing her ass and asking her how every single bite was. It backfired horribly, especially since everyone else at her table was ignored and treated like sh*t. Good jorb, manager!

Avonmore: MrEricSir: Whatever happened to restaurant critics staying anonymous? Is that not how they operate anymore?

From my reading of TFA, he did try to stay anonymous. But that's just an American affectation anyways. Critics are much more open about their profession in Europe.

"Hon hon hon! I am 'ere to criticize your filthy establishment! Bring me a baguette and some brie, monsieur!"
