Soy milk is an option for all beverages. And grab a pound of beans to go; they’ll grind them for you if you like.[post a reply]

J2 on Forequarter
I loved reading your review of Forequarter because it perfectly captured why it's such a great restaurant...the relaxed not rushed vibe (even when the place is packed), the feeling that everyone who is there (diners and employees alike)is happy to be there, and the incredibly delicious, seasonal, and artful food.
The first time I dined at Forequarter, we sat at the bar. When it was time for dessert, the bartender poured some custard in a mixing bowl, added some liquid nitrogen, and whisked up our dessert of fennel ice cream right in front of us just like he was mixing a drink. It was delicious, inventive, and not at all pretentious. I was sold on Forequarter from that point on, and have never been disappointed since.
Forequarter has received a lot of national attention lately, and all of it has been richly deserved. This place is not over-rated. It's everything everyone says it is and more.[post a reply]

If several people ordered burgers, and only one got sick, it most likely wasn't the burger.[post a reply]

It's very hard - and not very fair - to pin being sick on food one has consumed that recently. It would be fair to say the brother wasn't feeling well and that there was suspicion that it was the food; then we could draw our own conclusion based on knowledge of physiology and biology and decide that it was something eaten much earlier. It slays me that people immediately blame restaurants on their stomach issues (rare) and can't begin to imagine they were poisoned at home (common).[post a reply]

19 friends and I went to the Fountain for my birthday. Yes, we made reservations. And even though it was obvious they were nervous about a 20 top, they gave us the go ahead.
When we arrived exactly on time, it took them 20 minutes to set up the table(s). We didn't really mind, because we've been there enough to know that they're not made for big groups.
We had 2 waitresses. Danielle was perfect: she kept us hydrated and was always in the right place at the right time, and not to the point of annoyance. The other woman (blue and black dress, red hair?) was annoyed with us, and didn't work to hide it.
Everyone's food (mostly burgers) tasted great, except for my brother's. He was sick the rest of the night (he ordered the Fountain burger).
Use caution, at least and especially with small groups.[post a reply]

I've driven past the sign on PD many times since moving to a nearby neighborhood but could only imagine what the place was about. I'm glad I now know! To be clear, these prices do not include any sides? Or beverages? Or dessert? If so, I find that pretty steep for what appear to be rather ordinary items.[post a reply]

Does JM have a rule against asking for items to be left off sandwiches. I noticed in another post that he didn't get a lot of items at Panera because he didnt like one ingredient.[post a reply]

I mean these two are gourmands, they should know better than to order shrimp at an undergrad bar. Then again, maybe that was the test. They're right that if you're going to pay for your food that it should be edible.[post a reply]

"The King's Hawaiian pork & slaw sandwich was sat-Iz-fying"
Very subtle, but I see what you did there.[post a reply]

Yes, like that but bigger - these were sturdy 5-gallon buckets with lids. Perfect for a 20-lb. bag of kibble.[post a reply]

I feel stupid but what's a "pickle bucket?" Is it like an empty plastic ice cream pail except it housed pickles? I'm very intrigued and just might need a pickle bucket in my life once I know what it is. :)[post a reply]

"Inside job." By whom?!? "Why judge a place on one visit?! " Because that's how many times an establishment gets to prove itself to customers who expect a certain level of quality and service for their money. How many times do you think Duncan Hines ate at a place before he wrote his review? "Sure you were not impressed on the first try, but why bomb a place with words that make you sound like a pretentious jackass?" What words in the review were pretentious? Coconut? Rectangle? Edith Piaf? (I bet it was that!!)[post a reply]

Joe on Blue Velvet Lounge
Let me guess, you were upset because the sauce wasn't an 'aioli' or the shrimp wasn't fresh-caught that day. What a joke of a review. I frequent the BV and have had the food here plenty of times with friends on the weekends. This review looks and sounds like an inside job. Why judge a place on one visit?! Sure you were not impressed on the first try, but why bomb a place with words that make you sound like a pretentious jackass? If seafood was their specialty then fine, be upset and blog about it. This place is clearly a cocktail bar AKA they serve alcoholic beverages. Next time you go into an establishment looking for soft drinks and fried food, I suggest Chuck E Cheese.[post a reply]

Does bacon count as a ham sandwich?[post a reply]

Marsha K on 5th Quarter
This makes me kind of sad because I've never had a meal there that I'd grade lower than a B+, and that B+ was a fish fry. The Hubs and I have always found their food to be fresh, full of flavor, and generous. Their house-special fries are excellent and the dip they come with is a perfect companion to them. I detest - really, I hate, but that's a strong word - the atmosphere at sports bars/restaurants and normally avoid it at all costs, so it says something about my experience with the food at the 5th Quarter that I go back there again and again.[post a reply]

catwoman on Beach House (McFarland)
I think the food here is OK - nothing to write home about (although I haven't tried the walleye, which I've heard is very good), but we keep coming back here because you can't beat the atmosphere. We like to come during odd, off-peak times so we can sit at one of the tables in the window and enjoy the lake view. Very, very pleasant place - and great staff, too![post a reply]

Marsha K on Draft House
Ate there again last night (we live somewhat nearby and had to have a quick early dinner). I wasn't very hungry so all I ordered was an app - their jalapeno popper wantons. They were a fun diversion, something different, until I dipped the second one into the chili sauce that came with them, and that kicked them into high freakin' gear! My Love had the blackened walleye again and it was gone before I could even ask for a bite. As you noted, their beer selections are indeed poor, especially when it comes to their namesake.[post a reply]

I'm going to have to send this to my coworker...this is his friends's place and will be happy to see the good review. :)[post a reply]
