Re: “Pittsburgh City Paper Booze Battles: Spork vs. Apteka

No sense of which the critics liked better overall, or even that it was a tie or a split decision. Making it sound like a contest implies that there will be some kind of answer, no?

Re: “Friendship Bagel

digitalwalden has only heard one song, and that one song was the only one they needed to form a worldview and an online persona.

that one song was Regulate by Warren G and Nate Dogg. Feel free now?
I don't.

Re: “Friendship Bagel

I'd love to see the HACCP plan he has for his stream preserved peach blossom infused rainwater that I'm guessing he plans to feed consumers.

Re: “The Revel half of Revel & Roost is a worthy destination for a casual dinner Downtown

We're mostly annoyed when we go to Revel and Roost. We always want it to be great but it never really is. The managers are frequently running around trying to look busy and important and every time we're there it's really slow. What's the problem? The servers are nice-ish, meaning they're polite enough but if you really ask about the menu or a beer on tap, they get annoyed and grumpy that they actually have to work (and by work I mean answer a question!). My husband asked for an IPA and the server brought him the wrong beer. He knew it was wrong but drank it anyway because she disappeared and he didn't feel like getting into it. When she came back, he asked about the beer he actually ordered and she said oh we haven't had that beer for months, our draft list is never up to date! Ok, those managers I mentioned that are running around, trying to look busy? Why don't you update your draft list and train your servers properly? The atmosphere is always odd and lackluster. For the expense and location, step it up!

Re: “Grilled asparagus with ramps, hard-boiled egg and horseradish

I have had the opportunity to try many of Brandon Blumenfeld's creations. He is truly on his way to being the latest of Pittsburgh's great chefs!

Re: “THE CHEESE CELLAR

My grandmother was an executive chef at the cheese cellar for years. I was a young child/into a young teen when she worked there and I miss it dearly. Think about it often and wish it was still around.

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

I could've licked plates here on numerous occasions. Coziest, tastiest spot in the city. Was always top of our list. You will be sorely missed, delicious Dish!

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

LOL @ Stephen! The place was amazing and was packed every night they were open. I went on a Wednesday evening without a reservation and was lucky to get a seat at the bar. It will be missed.

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

Their massive success shows why so many people came out for these "simple meals". That's the genius of good Italian cooking; taking something simple and making it absolutely sublime. I'll miss this place, it leaves a hole in Pittsburgh.

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

The local market weeded this place out; no parking options, poor and repulsive location, high prices for simple meals you could prepare in seconds at home. Get out!

$18 for a simple bowl of pasta? Yeah, this is not New York. Be gone.

Re: “Scott Smith, of East End Brewing Company, lets his baby bird fly with can distribution

Oxygen doesn't skunk beer. It oxidizes it. Only sunlight can make a beer skunky. Get your stuff together, Scott. You should know this.

Re: “Classic sandwiches get great new presentations at Allison Park’s Stak Shak

Their food is very good and the decor is super cute. However, it's difficult to enjoy any of that because the seating is SO UNCOMFORTABLE!! The bar seats are especially uncomfortable and instead of wanting to linger over a nice dinner, we couldn't wait to leave. They have a fantastic cocktail, craft beer, and wine menu and we were so excited to try this great new place near our home. Unfortunately, it's just not pleasant to hang out there. The bar stools are actually painful! Too bad.
