@politico It's true. I'm really biased against your boy Anthony Weiner. But it wasn't just me! It was also 95% of the NYC Democrats who voted yesterday. So, while it must be hard for you, you're just going to have to learn to move on. Good luck!
@kpm--You are totally right and I am totally never going to write posts at 3 am and sloppily identify old Saturday Night Live impressions. Yikes.
@matt stabile--Ha. Oops. That's what happens when writing in the middle of the night. You link to the wrong photo. Thanks for pointing that out.
At no point in this post do I advise diners to "neglect" your menu. Rather I specifically recommend that all the food at Gwynnett St is incredible and that diners ought to return on an occasion where they can enjoy the tasting menu.
You may have misunderstood the purpose of this list, but my intention was to showcase menu items that would be representative of the establishment at hand, and that people could enjoy without breaking the bank. Dismissive as you are of "coupon clippers" and "fake poor folks...with trust fund stipends" (which, what?), there are actually a lot of people in Brooklyn who appreciate innovative, delicious food but can't afford to spend over $100 on a single meal. However, they might be able to swing sitting at the bar of your restaurant, having a well-crafted cocktail and enjoying the bread and butter. Why this would earn your contempt is beyond me. I was unaware that you were in a position to insult and turn away potential customers, but apparently that's the case.
I wouldn't worry about being removed from this list. I doubt any reader would see your comment and choose to eat at Gwynnett St, whether it be for an appetizer at the bar or for the tasting menu. I certainly know I'll never go again.
Jeff! Leonard Cohen didn't just wear shorts, he wore shorts better than any other man has worn shorts in his entire life.

The Red Hook Ballfield Food Trucks are indeed amazing. But we've written about them at length here: http://www.bkmag.com/BKFood/archives/2013/…
so I decided to go another direction with this. I guess the point is that there's plenty of ways to enjoy Brooklyn without breaking the bank!
Fixed! Thanks for pointing that out.
I have no idea why you still read this drivel.
Perhaps it's because you like commenting anonymously under different user names?
Not the most worthwhile use of one's time, I wouldn't think, but different strokes, I guess.
