Re: “Cuts Both Ways

Will everyone just calm the f*** down? Coupons are stupid. The time you spend hunting for, downloading and managing "deals" is worth more than your saving, not to mention the dignity you erode with each utterance of "do you want this coupon now or when we pay?" Oh, and lets put 'restaurant week' in this column, too. the fact it gets so busy tells us all too much about the average #RVA diner's priorities. F****g phillistines.

Also, crab cakes are stupid. If you order them frequently I'm immediately suspicious of your palate. Nothing wrong with a good one, just don't wear it on your sleeve as an indicator of your culinary envelope-pushing. Eat it, leave the tip and go. Bye.

To the genius who said "we don't need to eat out" and the other commenter who said eating out is like "going to someone's house;" realize that if a chef is worth a damn you should be able to eat any of the food being offered, unless you have a food allergy or are just choosing to be unreasonable. Tim at Secco once served me a 5-course tasting that employed cantaloupe and coffee in a couple of the dishes. I HATE both. The dishes were outstanding. Point is, chefs know how to BUILD flavors that work with or against each other the same way a composer can convey serenity, joy, anticipation, tension, anger, or whatever they want to express. If you don't get the full depth of that do everyone a favor and shut up, put the shells & cheese in the microwave, ready your spork and a paper napkin, and enjoy.

My advice? Try restaurants. Reward the ones you like with return business and good word-of-mouth. Splurge. So what if you take home a little doggy bag... That stuffs gonna be awesome at midnight or lunch tomorrow and you know it. Don't be a douche. If you don't like a restaurant, don't go back. So simple. I hate American Idol, so, you know what? I don't watch it.
