Apparently Hungry Mother Really Wanted to Win Munch Madness

Apparently Hungry Mother Really Wanted to Win Munch Madness

Kendall Square's favorite Southern restaurant has won the Globe's Munch Madness competition for the second year in a row. How? By intimidating the opponents via a simple system of passive-aggression, of course.

The Globe reports that the pranksters at Hungry Mother "got a bit cocky" and sent a sympathy bouquet to their primary nemesis, Craigie on Main. "The card read: You deserve happiness instead of heartbreak, peace instead of pain. . . . May time help to ease your grief and bring you the happiness and peace that you deserve." Apparently the Hungry Mother staff even hand-wrote a message: “Dear Tony [Maws] and staff — With our deepest sympathy on coming in second place in 2012 Munch Madness. You’re still #1 in our hearts. Love, Hungry Mother."

Icy! Just the same, winning the Globe's just-for-fun restaurant competition is nice and all, but at least Craigie still has that Bon Appetit cover to fall back on.
