Let Them Eat Views

by in View All Posts, February 5th, 2009

Via CHOW comes word of one of the most devastating restaurant reviews I’ve seen in ages (that wasn’t written by AA Gill) — the intro alone reads as follows:

When the culinary highlight of your three-course meal is the breadsticks, you won’t be recommending the restaurant anytime soon.

When the check is an eye-popping $606 for two and the restaurant is the fabled Rainbow Room, you want to wave a picket sign for all the tourists in Rockefeller Plaza telling them this is the biggest ripoff in town.

I’d suggest reading the whole thing in any case, and of course the merits of scathing reviews, expensive institutions, and lowered expectations are all up for debate, but it seems like there’s only one real thing to say in response.
