Getting a line cook or prep cook position

Craigslist is an excellent answer as ipse said, also just word of mouth and or knocking on some doors. If it's your passion don't be afraid to pursue it. Good Luck.

I do not use an ipad, but I stay logged on for days on my iphone. I might have to re-log once a week.

Turkey is a gout trigger? Really? I've never heard that. Funny I suffered from the gout from my mid 20's into my mid 30's, even to the point of taking allenpurenal(?) daily to try and combat the attacks. My foot/heel, knee, wrist and hands all suffered attacks over the years. Then after going gout free for awhile I just stopped taking the allenpurenal, and haven't had an attack in years. My diet is very red meat, shell-fish and vodka heavy but somehow I've adapted. ((Knocking on wood))

Chic Fil A highest rated fast food

If # 3 is a grouping of all the other small players, and Mc Donalds is ranked # 18, they are f*ucked.

Just out of curiosity, can someone explain #3 on the list; " All Others", but then the list continues with a bunch of "others". (notice Mc D's at #18 ??)

Gallaghers Resorts Casino. A C

Well if you are a NY Steakhouse fan, Trop has Palm and Old Homestead is in Borgotta. Those would be my next pick's after Knife and Fork and above Gallaghers.

+1 million!!!

Knife and Fork is the way to go. It's the complete opposite side of town from Resorts, you can enjoy a scenic view of the hookers on your ride back to Resorts!! Enjoy !!

"We reserve the right to refuse...." Whole Foods

Yeah....wearing a lulu lemon tank top deserves a beat down, since it was your brother I can understand giving him a pass.

Lululemon pants!?!? There is a place where people who wear those all gravitate too?!?!?! I might have to go have a "look" around!! Thanks for the tip!

Franchise Restaurants in Public Schools?

(I'm late 80's so don't sweat it)

They served a national chain pizza. but does that mean they ordered 30 pies and had them delivered, then sold the $1.00 a slice? Or was there a little Domino's stand/window where the franchise was actually doing business in the school? That's the impression I got from the thread and the idea that is just foreign to me.

That's a valid point, any decent sub roll would devour the amount of meat they put on their sandwiches.

Does anyone know what kind of food/menu is being served at Argo in Ocean (old Mike & Nellie's)?

****MOD'S why is this in a Q&A format when there is no real question being asked.

metfan.....FYI the place next to Luigies has re-opened as a Greek Cafe. (unless they have re-closed in the past 2-3 weeks)

Franchise Restaurants in Public Schools?

So somewhere in the thread/link provided it was disclosed by a younger contributor to the site that Subway had a presence in her public school. (high school not college). The school also had a Franchise Coffee Bar available to their students.

Perhaps I've lived a sheltered life, but I've never heard of franchises opening or serving directly in our schools? Private school, yes....college(s) yes, but this is a public high school?

Is this a common thing? I'm in NJ and I can' tell you of any public schools that have this arrangement.

That was quick, I passed over the weekend and took note to the fact the place was just sitting empty.

Can someone explain to me how this works, is it "herd mentality". The central "Eatontown" area went from having -0- Greek restaurants to now having 4 opening within 6 mos of each other. The new owners can't be relying on the booming economy of their investments in their homeland.

(I don't know all their names but I'll give you the locations, the place next to Luiggi's in Lincroft, 2 miles south on the same road/520 across from Red Bank Volvo, the old Cobblestone Diner on 35 and this place)

It would be an interesting study to see if they offered outside baked bread and gave the customers an option what the result would be.

Russ, I know it might be difficult but could you please give me an example as to the nuance of the smell of "intelligent" alien yeast as apposed to "unintelligent" alien yeast.

Thanks.

Fathers Day BBQ

I'm fortunate to be able to still celebrate this day with my father, father in law and my own two children. I'm hosting the day with a BBQ at my home. (Hoping the weather forcast changes)

Happy Father's Day to all my local peeps. God Bless us all.....and all our fathers still with us or not!

Enjoy!

Red Bank lost its credibility when Tiffany's moved in and the landlord pushed out Prawns(?) to make way for Chase Bank.

Listen there is a huge difference between a steak and a prime aged steak. However if you just want a good piece of meat there is no shame in what Outback-Longhorn or Texas Roadhouse serves. As you point out for $20-$25 you rarely go wrong.
