"...let's just say they aren't the type to post on Yelp."
I read that a person who participates in creative writing endeavors as they age (such as restaurant reviews, letters to the editor, etc.) actually exercise the mind and are less likely to suffer from dementia or other mental degenerative illnesses in later life. Hence my dozen or so review submissions on yelp. It is
simply a venue for me. While I agree there is a ton of crap on that site, there are also some decently written reviews. Indeed, I attempt to emulate you in my reviews.
Oh yes, I've dined at Dakota twice in the last month too.

This place rocks! They even make their own bacon and use it not only in their cooking but also for a bacon infused vodka. It's become one of my favorite restaurants!
Better than cheap tacos and WARM beer!
The chile relleno was good. It had piñon nuts, carmelized onion, and some other veggies, but I wasn't so sure about what made it particularly "Mexico City". It also came on a bed of rice and black beans, which also made me wonder if there was really a Mexico City connection. The food was good, though, as were the salsas.
Anybody but El Charro.
On my last visit (and it had been a long time before that) my daughter and I waited at the bar for our companions and after practically begging the bartender for a glass of wine, it arrived "fizzy" looking, as though it had been shaken vigorously. He basically threw it up on the bar and went back to servicing the wait staff. After being seated and served by a friendly, knowledgeable young woman I found the food fine but not the sublime fare I'd heard about over and over again. There was nothing wrong; it just wasn't spectacular. The next day I found that my credit card was processed twice for our check and called to get it straitened out. I was asked by the manager taking care of it how the evening was. I detailed for her what had transpired to which she reacted by insisting they send me a gift card to make amends. Frankly, I haven't used it, just not feelin' it if you know what I mean.
I've had breakfast here and it was delicious! Can't wait to try lunch and cocktails
Jacqui, I, too, will be requesting pizza for my last meal. But where to get if from is the big question. I guess that'll depend on my mood on my final day.
We had dinner there last night. We had the Caesar salad with more of a vinaigrette than a traditional caesar dressing. Nice portion for $9. My wife and split the cura, which was very sparsely populated with soppressata and a few calamata olives. The salad took about 20 minutes to come out and then the pizza followed 10 minutes later. Pizza from a wood burning oven should come out bubbling hot and this was not. It was hot but clearly it sat on the counter for a good five minutes before it came out. Wood fired pizza should be crunchy on the bottom, but this was a bit floppy. They mention on the menu "We request no substitutions, but let us know if we can do something for you". Well... it seems to me if they really wanted to do something for me, they would allow substitutions...As mentioned in the review, beer selection was very small. Not a bad meal, just somewhere marginally above average. Service was slow, but pleasant.
Does not sound real promising to me.
good I hate going to Union, something else there will be nice.

Which spot at St. Phillips is Bodega occupying?
The non-NRP Ari Shapiro. LOL
I eat there every Saturday. The food is excellent, the prices fair, the service...it depends on the wait staff you get on a particular day, but I've never had service that was so bad that I left angry or anything.
This place has an excellent reputation nationwide, and rightfully so.
HAHA but of course not my dear Rita. I am much too refined a gent. I obtain my ladies of the night off of the internet and meth from the street corners like anyone with self respect.
@burnie mak - that isn't from personal experience, I hope.
