Re: “DiAnoia's old-world pizza gets its own home with Pizzeria Davide

Here's an idea: Offer the pizzas in house all the time for sit down patrons. Why is this concept so hard for this place? You can't order them for dinner if you are eating there. WHY???? It makes NO SENSE. I would like to eat it fresh out of the oven and not have to drive some where or eat it in my car. This place is completely overrated.

Would that be the same Bayer that just bought the herbicide RoundUp from Monsanto last year?

So Miguel is in the Azores, not San Miguel.

Re: “Spoiler: Absinthe isn’t trippy

"Truthfully, when diluted properly, it's only a bit more alcoholic than a glass of wine."

Thank you, thank you, thank you! However this should read "when consumed properly".

The single most important truth (or anti-misunderstanding) about absinthe, in my opinion, is that it is a concentrated drink. It isn't, and never was, intended to be drunk undiluted. A proper glass of absinthe starts with just 1 ounce of the absinthe (the concentrate). As such, its bottled alcohol percentage is irrelevant. It's only bottled at the percentages that it is to preserve it until it is served.

Not only does a properly prepared glass of absinthe contain no more alcohol than an average glass of wine, it contains less alcohol than 12 ounces of most IPA beers (never mind 16 ounce pours!), and most standard and classic mixed drinks.

I commend you for staying away from the usual "high alcohol" hyperbole usually part of these kinds of articles. It's a dialogue I think it's high time we all moved away from.

Three spouts drip water from a clear tank onto glasses dressed with sugar cubes and grills

They are called spoons, not grills you filthy casual.

Re: “Spoiler: Absinthe isn’t trippy

"After a second distilling, the substance (herbs and all) is shocked with hot water. Scalding releases chlorophyll, resulting in the signature absinthe green."

No, after the second distillation, a second mix of herbs is soaked in the warm distillate to release chlorophyll (and add flavor).

Re: “It was bound to happen: veganism gets "manly"

I've been writing about masculinity and veganism since 2008 on TheDiscerningBrute.com (even have a "on masculinity" commentary on the about page) and I launched the first vegan menswear line Brave GentleMan in 2010. The intersection of masculinity and veganism is pretty fascinating as it unveils some very foundational ideologies.

Re: “A beautiful, 116-year-old building in Bellevue gets a Revival

It should be noted that the eagle sculptures that stand watch at the entrance are the ex-trees that hid the building in its earlier days. Whoever did that sculpture had only one take to do it.

Re: “A beautiful, 116-year-old building in Bellevue gets a Revival

Revival's decor is anything but kitschy- a playful mixture of local artists sprinkle the walls while the glamor is comfortable and approachable. However, it is really all about the cuisine and this is definitely the prize jewel.

Revival is everything this reviewer says and more. They also have a nice intimate bar that has daily specials from 4 to 6.

Re: “Hokkaido Seafood Buffet

We are full aware that when you go eat somewhere if the food is bad or the product not supplied is as the following explanation most reputable restaurants will send a responsible person to at least apologize but i like to share our experience at this restaurant with bullet points 1. First of all the is a buffet style all you can eat which is typical with oriental restaurants which most people has visited at least once in their life 2. this is no cheap at least $20 per person however a small sign at entrance not visible hand written says anything over 7 crab legs charge is $1 per leg please notice that the crab legs are the smallest and thinnest we you have ever seen. 3. we like crab legs and shrimp that's why this place was selected we figured high price probably equals to good product and service 4. Went to get crab legs to our surprise just about 4-5 thin legs buried in hot water was there had to wait 10-15 minutes 5. Upon getting the 7 LEGS returned to the table to find out there is no meat in it, yes just a flimsy skinny leg but absolutely Zero meat we said well lets get the waitress, which came over with disbelieve has all the unbroken empty shells including pincers ( if that is what they are called) are empty, she say go get some more, well there very little out so another wait in the meanwhile ate some peel and eat shrimp so my family the same. 6. finally more crab legs are out went through he same procedure with same results no meat in it at all, now they call the person supposedly to be in charge ironically same guy the greeted at door, very hard to understand but the issues was that he would not let us leave without more tries of the crab legs so we were in a way sequestrated in the place, i nicely asked him three time but than he says come to desk speak to manager so I went. 7. Everyone there was speaking what i think was Chinese and did not really explained what was going on made me feel uncomfortable as i think some other individuals under same situation would be, the customer service experience was bad to say at least, the manager looked at me with a smirk on his face and said quote "just eat rest of food its ok and pay" !! at that point i got upset but i kept my cool i asked the 3 waitresses which witness the crab leg but all sudden couldn't speak any more English but the entire outcome was what I think Chinese language, the waitresses were dismissed and left with head down. 8. Now the greeter and this other oriental lady said go back to your table quote'' we cook a batch of crab legs just for you" please note we are a family of 5 and the rest have picked a couple things but I asked for them to stop eating until we sort this out 9. new batch came in steaming hot with hot water pouring out still, for all of you that have had crab legs before you know now its like bending a piece of rubber same results and situation getting worse, i told them that i just wanted to leave greeter guy said quote " just stay we give discount" how much you want off? We didn't wear our best clothing that night but certainly wasn't looking for a freebie or discount, by this time most people would flipped out but i was there for a fun night and didnt want to set bad example 10. Now as a matter of principal I told the Mgr to call the police and make a record of the incident, there are many other details pertinent to this but in any event the Police came and after explained what happened they said that its not the first time that they have been there. 11. My Bill was over $100 but they gave me $15 off since my son did not eat at all So I paid and tipped the waitress but I just wanted to share with everyone what happened and the very poor care of this people that work there with no quality control of what they serve as they made us feel that was or fault and they have no responsibility as stated by them of the frozen crab legs that come in, we would never ever go back there as if there is no way to check the food coming in im we are deeply worried about what can happen next, I would be aware as crab legs with no meat must be a cause of something going wrong never again
