Help me help you see the obese, hot-pink elephant in the room.  After all, isn't the eminent death of a restaurant/lounge almost too obvious?  Apparently not. 

But to me, it is. 

Picture it: gorgeous space - awkward location - impossibly difficult menu, both in terms of price and ingredient comprehension - aloof staff, who care more about staring at their own reflection in the decorative mirror located behind their guest's heads, while explaining the evening's specials, than they do about earning a sense of rapport or that highly coveted return visit especially in NYC, when most people don't eat at the same place twice. 

It's a shame how many of these tainted venues and menus I've seen come and go.  What's worse, at least in my opinion, is being me, the outsider, vs. you, the insider, who can see exactly what went wrong.  My point?  I'd like to offer my services - free, for the time being - to any chefs, restaurateurs, bakeries, food trucks, etc. who are looking for some good, old-fashioned, honest feedback on their product, menu, or venue. 

Are you ready to "hear it?"  Because I'm ready to share it.  Email me and let's schedule something:


Until we eat again,
