M. Wells Dinner

Im surprised when I hear about the service issues and shocked by the Richman thing.
I had excellent service while we were there, and they had run out of a few of the things that my sister had wanted to order, so they wordlessly comped our drinks and brought us 2 free slices of cake to go.

Im actually looking forward to hearing what you had in Forest Hills.
I live there currently and would be at a loss as to where to bring you to eat.

Would you go to a restaurant that doesn't serve beer, wine or any alcohol

I feel like my concern really wouldnt be whether or not anyone would patronize a restaurant that did not have a liquor license, but more the issue of whether its possible for a restaurant to survive economically without the revenue from the liquor 'markups'.

Who at the restaurant is at fault?

>>Don't they watch Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares???? <<

Jesus Christ, I should hope not.

Pio Pio green sauce

They sell it by the 'half quart'... its the size of the 'small Chinese takeout soup container'.

The reservation rules at Momofuku Ko?

I had a different issue (food allergy that I didnt mention when I made the rezz) the last time I had dinner there, and I called, email, and 'messaged' them through their website and got nothing.
When I got to my reservation, I confirmed the food allergy, they looked like they had no idea what I was talking about, so I dont think they check their messages, voicemail or email at all.
