Re: “The 8 Best “Summer” Dishes to Make in March

Not only is this particular article pointless and misguided, you don't even bother to list recipes, or recommend specific dishes to try at restaurants around Brooklyn. You only offer some bullshit, abstract ideas of food items. how fucking lazy.

I wish this publication as a whole tried harder. The art direction is like watered down Urban Outfitters catalogs and the overall taste level is boring when it's not horribly short-sighted. I hope the content is guided more by your advertisers than genuine interest. I can't think of any other reason to promote such middling creative pursuits.

Aside from Paddy Johnson's column, this is such a heap of crap.

Re: “The 8 Best “Summer” Dishes to Make in March

The first & third commenter above me are COMPLETE idiots. The pictures are awesome, and the food looks great. Simple & Summery...with a very "L" color scheme. Keep at it Art Department!!

Haters gon hate. Internet trolls gon troll.

Re: “We Can Do Better: The 10 Most Overrated Foods

oh! this is the worst list! I would think "overrated" would include things that were popular on menus everywhere within the last 3 years, not basic ingredients to cook with....especially not truffles. Remember when everything had a little frisée garnish, or excessive use of foams? This list is like saying water is overrated....because obviously the writer is going for the ironic: it's not really overrated I just strive to be ironic list.
NO BUENO!!

Re: “We Can Do Better: The 10 Most Overrated Foods

@Jeff Rey Charles Aldridge: Genetic biodiversity is important to a healthy ecosystem, and while there are numerous individual, or "heritage" breeds of cattle (and heirloom varieties of fruits/vegetables), many aren't bred/cultivated industrially and some have even become extinct. Raising them for food is one practical way to ensure their survival and promote much-needed biodiversity. Check out more about it here: http://albc-usa.org/ and here: http://heritagefoodsusa.com

Corn didn't take the top spot? If butter is in almost everything, then corn is in EVERYTHING!

If a breed was threatened, why would we spark a craze to kill it and eat it?

Re: “Brooklyn’s 10 Best New Restaurants

Quick comment on Littleneck:
I'll stick to the facts. We made a reservation for 8people (6adults &2kids) for an early saturday night dinner. We all arrived on time and we were shown a booth for 6people. The staffer assumed the kids would sit on someone's lap for the entire dinner service. We quickly said 'No thanks" and we prepared to leave. A short haired blonde woman was apologetic and said they could make it right if we waited a few minutes. So the 8 of us waited by the front door for 15mins and we were shown a 4top (table for 4people)! I wish I was joking. Another waiter (balding guy) said you might be a little tight but it should work. We politely said No Thanks again and walked out. It is a shame common sense is often overlooked as part of "good service"
