Coop's BBQ (Lemon Grove)?

Had a a unfortunate meal at coops today. The rib tips had no smoke ring (no, not necessary, but they used to have it) and little smoke flavor. If I was forced to guess, I'd say it was way under smoked and way over steamed while waiting to be served.

It's my hope this is an isolated incident, but I left disappointed.

Easy like Sunday Morning. .

It's back open. Looks about the same. Maybe it was a repair or something.

Grass-fed Beef Brisket in San Diego

Umm. I'd try Rimels. Never been there, but never tried to find a grassfed brisket either.

What say ye, SuperChowers?

Help us understand what empirical data should be used to establish an environment that indicates bias?

Are there units of measure- biasmeters (presumably read with a biasometer) with which we can establish a threshold?

Perhaps a nod of recognition from the staff as a regular customer would count as a single biasmeter. A word from the chef would count as two biasmeters.

An amuse bouche would rate at least four biasmeters, and Facebook friends would add an additional two.

Combining a post with the biasmeter score could be helpful as well, but may be difficult to parse, depending on the nature of the post. Is the post "significant" and should have the biasmeter applied? Or do insignificant posts escape the biasmeter scale altogether?

Does photography require a biasmeter logo or watermark?

San Diego Public Market - RIP?

Never witnessed anything "high end" there, and the key was her pathetically low rent- she was making a KILLING there. Apparently (relayed to me by a credible source) the place was FILTHY- kitchens scabbed in under old health regs, etc.

Sure, she was successful and she made a lot of money- on that we can agree.

"as they will not describe regular experiences and will be very biased"

MAY be biased I think would be fair.

I'd still take a biased mmm-yoso (even in the worst case) over the clown from the Reader.

San Diego is the Place to Go For...

Don't. There's nothing compelling about it, and I'm a long-time burrito aficionado.

Hello, my name is Fake [helloo, Fake!], and I'm an addict.

MrFoodieChick will doubtlessly back up my assertion that the most important part of any graphic design is the negative space.

What say ye, SuperChowers?

Then don't.

But the Reader "writer" tells me more about himself with his self-aggrandizing than the piss-poor content of his "article".

I've been reading mmm-yoso for some time ( he's a Chowhound) and I'll take his word first.

You're welcome to make your own choices.

Hey, I've not been to the place, and I can't defend or promote it. But I know BS when I see it, and the Reader just served up a shovelful.

Let see- who has more credibility here? The clown from the Reader (did you read that crap? Unbelieveable what passes for food writing) or mmm-yoso.
 
 
 
 

Wait, wait- gimme a chance the think about it...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Almost there- just gathering my thoughts.
 
 
 
 
 
I think I'll believe mmm-yoso. Oh, but it was sooooo close. That Reader guy- nearly qualifies for a Yelp.

Weekend High and Low

High- dinner at Común Friday night- very, very good, will return.

Yes, loud.

Low: Harvey Milk for breakfast Saturday. Awful- lumpy grits and piss-poor service.

Can $3M food hall rival Pike Place?

That's nice, but what you focus on are businesses that can bring REVENUE and income for our (public) property.

Donovan's or Rainwater's in San Diego - which is better?

Just for the record- the Golden Triangle area is not La Jolla, despite the opinion of the real estate folks who benefit from that falsehood.

It's UTC or Miramar. La Jolla doesn't starts west of the 5, and really west of Torrey Pines Road.

San Diego's Local-Mussel Dishes

Dobson's mussel bisque gets, well, let's just say a disproportionate amount of discussion here on CH.

There is one 'hound who is awfully fond of it and the scene at Dobsons, but there are others, possibly as much as 90%, who either find it unremarkable or have not ventured to try it.

I try to adhere to the courtesy of never "yukking someone's yum" so I'll just say there is a 'hound who likes it.

Love their grilled shrimp tacos, and I live a few minutes away.

But there's no way in hell I'm standing in that line.

Bottega Americano--New Spot in Thomas Jefferson Law School Dowtown

Awesome.

Very happy with our meal, which included a charcuterie board, yellowtail crudo, beet salad, little gem green salad, a pappardelle with lamb sugo, and an amazing peach carpaccio dessert.

We wondered if our Über had taken a wrong turn and transported us 500 miles north.

Sadly, yes, urban warehouse environment that got too loud.

Ha.

I like to go to two swap meets, then Mariscos Pescador for Tostada Mixta para llevar. I order it para llevar, but eat it in my car- I prefer the cup of ceviche with tortillas on the side.

Optionally, breakfast at Great Maple- they open late at 8am, but I sneak in for a solo seat at the bar.

There is little to which I could compare those dining experiences here in San Diego. But all that cstr has suggested will give you plenty of excellent dining- just a different level and a different paradigm.
