I hope this short missive finds you in fine fettle. May I say what a rare delight it is to happen across one of your reviews. Your always incisive skewering of the restaurant industry has provided me with profligate food for thought if you'll pardon the pun. Circumspection be damned, your invective is as savage as ever.
If I appear licentious, it is merely that I use your prose as a model upon which to base my own. I of course can only aspire to hit the heights that you have in literary circles. I digress.
I would like to ask your opinion regarding your most recent takedown of the clearly average Papillion (despite the seemingly wild consensus that this is a five star "joint" - perhaps an avant-garde attempt at irony?)
What, in your estimation, makes for an "interesting bar". The age old question I know. I couldn't agree more that the days of the tired cliché of lashing a few bottles behind the counter are clearly long gone, and I'd like your thoughts on how to freshen up the stayed traditions of yore.
