I don't know too many people who have gone to Root, but one specifically told me that she went home hungry, and the "Fois-li Pop" was one of the most ridiculous desserts she'd ever eaten. She was on a date and didn't spend a cent - some OT balla took her, I suppose....

Pushing boundaries isn't enough. For $200 per person at Root, etc. it's gotta have super delicious food plus out of this world service at its core. That's why I'll remember Alinea for the rest of my life, above all else....

At least for the past 4 or so years, he has not been worth the exorbitant cost. I went to Stanley! over the weekend, and paid over $15 for an oyster po-boy (no sides, naturally) that is literally a half po-boy anywhere else. Boswell takes the half portion, cuts it down the middle, and then pas...
