Ha! They did the Raymond dusty but he is still going strong. The Original Mr K's on Park, yum.

Re: “Noshing Around

As for Mr. K's - The blame lies squarely on RICHARD YELLOT.

Richard - Stick with scamming people in real estate, the restaurant business isn't for you.

Great little bakery in there too, I grew up in that neighborhood, sure wish that place had been there back then. Fry's has done a good job across the street with their Mexican style cold deli and ice cream.

That place is GREAT, in fact it is the one I frequent the most, by far. It is west of Swan, and I live FAR east of Swan, so I am looking forward to this new place. I hope it is as good.

Re: “Noshing Around

I live just east of Swan and there's an excellent carniceria right nearby with great carne asada: El Herradero Carniceria y Panaderia. 22nd/Columbus.

Re: “Noshing Around

Nobody wants to be 100% forthcoming about their mistakes, but I didn't find them to be untruthful about anything.

Re: “Noshing Around

UmiStar has not been at all forthcoming about what has been going on since August. We were fairly frequent patrons previously but are not anxious to give them our custom now.

Re: “Noshing Around

Just saying....

Batali, on Yelp: "Personally, any place that doesn't have you put your name on it, I don't read. I have no time to figure out what you mean and what your agenda is. Yelp is very insignificant for us."

Re: “Noshing Around

I stopped by Umi yesterday. There was only a sign on the door, some empty cartons of take out and the kind of briefcase used by wine reps. No people. No movement. I love gossip as much as the next person but that's all yelp is about.....gossip.

Re: “Noshing Around

Careful, Rita. It's a big discussion on Yelp. Wouldn't want you to sully yourself by dealing with THOSE people.

Re: “Noshing Around

and how do we know that 'yeah really' isn't a disgruntled former employee? haha

Re: “Noshing Around

Haha Yeah, I am scared "yeah, really"...

You make a good point, that it might be interesting, but truth be told, that whole "Crazy restaurant owner, goes nuts, does fake reviews on Yelp and Reddit", has kind of been played out since the Amy's debacle.

yelp isn't journalism.....

Working on it.

Re: “Noshing Around

No, CJ, you didn't report on a controvery over a restaurant that claims they have good food, but reviewers disagree, yet good reviews appear to be written by the owner who has anger management issues and threatens to physically harm another reviewer whose only crime, as near as I could determine, was encouraging said owner to address some concerns with his staff.

Wow, journalism. Don't mean to scare you with the concept, though.
