"If we've lived this way for 200 years, why in heck's name would you want to change it now?" he says. "Nobody's given me an answer on that."
Here's a true story of South of the Border from 1999: http://youtu.be/P1CbvVGDzDQ.
If Yamazushi goes vegan, I will never set foot in the place. The whole article had me very, very interested... until reading that one line. I'm all for a fine dining experience, and it sounds like a wonderful date. But if it's vegan, count me out. Japanese food without some sort of meat is not Japanese food.
My mother wasn't able to have kids after her second, me being the first so she chose adoption agencies chicago il, and the adopted siblings are as much of my family as I am, and Its great!
Well, Now we know we have a wealthy landowner developer citing the education statistics. I could have sworn the PKS-NC stood for the Piedmont Kennel Society of NC.....I don't need any statistics now!
Note to Page McCullough: Sorry, I forgot. With the statistics cited by Mr. Price, and if the studies do exist, could you ask him to inform us if the researcher(s) used a null hypothesis and if the researchers were successful in rejecting the null hypothesis. Thank you.
Note to Page McCullough: When you get those statistics and methodologies from Mr. Price, could you forward me a copy? If he is kind enough to include references, whether this is a longitudinal study or one of control groups, and whether the analysis, if comparable, is significant at the p = ..05 or .01 levels, could you send that along too? Thank you.
Clarification......save us from the elected members of the General Assembly., he said.......Tribute to HBS
Shoot if you must, this half-bald head, but save our future from criminals in the NC General Assembly, he said.........Tribute to HBS
Be there March 6, 4pm. You owe it to yourself, your family, your children and society if you desire to live in a society in North Carolina and maintain a mere minimum of freedoms from government intrusion and exclusion in your life. Don"t fool yourself that you will be taken care of with the various social systems in place. They are vanishing daily in our State. I will be there, ready to STAND TALL.. We should all be fortunate William Barber has 20/20 vision in these matters. Thank you, Dr. Barber...
Yes, I also made a typing error (I usually do)...hopefully you have more to do then worry yourself about it.
You can only fixate a small mistake the rather than the context of the article.....Please, your pubescent comments does not make you of high intellect. Picking out negatives in order to self-glorify yourself…lame.
A gun would have been handy...
Read the Dylan review carefully. Heard him 3X in last 10 yrs. and his voice is unintelligble! He's completely overwhelmed by the volume of his band. Why is that? BTW-no bigger fan than me. 1st heard Blowin' in the Wind on a jukebox in Oct. '63, and have admired and appreciated him ever since. But pay $70. to not understand what song he's singing? Please.
Great fish, great slaw, great chips.
Martinez looks to be a great addition. Wonder how much Rutkiewicz will offer?
To those commenting and reading: As a Chef who has written reviews for a free weekly as a fill-in there are a few things you can find fault with in this review, but that's another topic. That said, I agree with everything said about the food and service in this article. Now before you are tempted to insult me, let me explain how I review and how I try new restaurants.
Having opened restaurants before I know from first-hand experience what the first few weeks are like. It's chaos. No one reviews a restaurant in the first two weeks for that reason. I visited Radius three times: Once the first week, once the second, and once the third. For a restaurant reviewer this is a great way to get a picture of where a new restaurant is headed, and by week three the should have the bugs worked out for the most part.
My first visit was horrible all around. I'm a wood-fired pizza aficionado so my hopes were high, and I looking for things to believe in. For the second visit it was adequate, but lacking. For the third it slid back to abysmal.
Each visit I had the EXACT same thing. Again, a great way to measure progress. Now, I won't go into the food details (since I'm attempting to make an overall point), but I will say the crust was the largest problem for them food-wise. The service however got worse each visit. On my third visit a waitress insisted reading us the desert menu even though we didn't ask, and on the second our waitress attempted to tell me that my pizza was properly cooked when the crust wasn't even blonde.
So that is what I would have written my review on. Afterwards, I went back for a fourth time just to try something different. I ordered a sandwich on an average lunch day. It arrived 40 minutes later barely warm, with cold limp fries accompanying it. My lunch partner fared no better with a soggy pizza. We made no comment, and decided to finish and head out since the food was "OK" overall, and we didn't have time to wait for more food.
As we finished our meal sitting at their beautiful bar another patron asked the bartender if she wanted to know if he liked his meal (she had what seemed to be a dismissive attitude towards all the customers at the bar and ignored them as much as possible). She replied "sure", and he proceeded to tell her that his meal took a very long time and came cold. What she said next floored me. She looked at him and said "Yeah, it seemed cold to me too", turned around, and walked away. My lunch partner both looked at each other and shook our heads in disbelief. I usually tip 20% out of respect and laziness (it's easier than doing the math), but this time I took out my phone and calculated exactly 15%, and fel too generous at that.
So, was it fair to write a review after one visit on Last Friday? Probably not, but this review nailed a summary of every experience I've had there, and like the reviewer we both believe it still has promise and look forward to a better meal there someday.
Wow, she speaks well. I hope someone will tell her to NOT accept the prosecutors "deal" in exchange for a milder sentence. It's a gamble, but Zaina sounds like she's willing to go all the way with this. When I was arrested during Occupy Chapel Hill I refused to accept the deal. The judge listened to my plea and called my resistance to excessive power an action of civil disobedience. No sentence, no court charges. It does depend on the judge, but I felt more empowered speaking the truth instead of allowing my half-wit lawyer to finagle a deal for me. Best of luck to Zaina too.
This review belongs on Yelp along with all the other amateur opinions, not the Indy. A seasoned food critic would never 1) try a place only once before ripping it; 2) write a revierw only weeks after a restaurant opens, while the kinks are being worked out; 3) go during one of the busiest nights of its existence, when the town is out on the streets in force for Last Friday (not "Last Fridays Art Walk," FYI) and the wait is an hour; and 4) bring five young kids to distract from the experience. I have been to Radius several times and enjoyed both the food and atmosphere, but the owners would be the first to tell you that there is still plenty of room for adjustments/improvements, and they are always appreciative of constructive feedback. This review was not at all constructive, but a self-indulgent exercise. The Indy should have higher standards.
You're review says "outside New Haven, Conn. (the birthplace of pizza y'all, and I say that seriously)"
I thought the birthplace of pizza was was Italy/Greece/Mediterranean and found the pizza to much more like pizza we've had in Rome, but with a bit more in the way of generosity of toppings.
You're review says 'had a gooey foundation of cheese" Not what I'm looking for in a pizza, but that's just me. Not a true pizza to my experience, what you describe is an American version, to be found most anywhere. Glad to have an alternative option for pizza in Hillsborough to Domino's and Pizza Hut.
