Strip-T's Tim Maslow isn't delighted that people have been trying to get insider info about the menu at his upcoming Brookline place, Ribelle's. Yesterday menu speculation surfaced on several food sites, ours included, and Maslow fired back with a Tweet: "Trolling the selectman hearing for menus and info it just gross. The menu is fake. Please let us plan instead of speculating. Thank you." Today he Tweets that the actual concept is "upscale Old Country buffet." Well, what's worse than people speculating about what you'll serve at your incredibly anticipated-hyped restaurant? Nobody speculating? [Twitter/StriptsTM]
We eat out a lot. We have wonderful meals, and foul meals, and overdone meals, and sublime meals. And many of our favorite meals this year came from places that just don't get a ton of ink, not for lack of deliciousness but just because they're shoestring operations trying to churn out awesome food on a budget. We're not knocking the big places: We've had some splendid meals there, too (still dreaming of bone marrow at Craigie on Main). But, in this flurry of top ten lists and must-eats and best plates of 2012 round-up-o-ramas, well, we want to give a shout-out to the littler guys.
New Year's Eve is our one mandatory holiday you must celebrate. Try telling people you're staying in on December 31 and you will see them go through stages of confusion, disbelief, moral outrage, and activism that will end with them making plans for you. But while the idea of everyone being out is fun in theory, it's sloppy in practice. Seasoned party veterans mingle with nightlife n00bs, and nobody can get a drink because every bartender in America is in the weeds. This has to stop.
“Cookin is gooood!”
I'm picky about meatball subs so when I say is good it's really good
“Awsome food and drink”
After spending all your hard earned dollars in the Pru enjoy a few cool one here before you take the T home.
Having worked at Olive Garden for 3 years I guess I never really knew what REAL Italian food tasted like.
