Sloppy Seconds: A Date With Destiny
Some call it talent, some call it chance, but here at City o' Fate, we know these things are preordained. Some chefs are picked early on as future stars. Some competitive eaters peak early and wonder, years later, and reminisce over a sandwich. If you want to predict the future, as the man says, you'd best take a look at the past.
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: Dave enjoys his time at Zymology, Greenville Avenue's latest satro-pub.
- Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brennan gives Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen a solid three-star rating, and Hully and Mo an astounding... three-star rating.
D Magazine: Coast Global Seafood gets a third critical eye, after Dave recommended it here, and a DMN contributor found it wanting. In the tie-breaker, Nancy Nichols comes down in favor.
