Re: “Stroud's pans for new customers in southern OP

I can relate to what Chuck is saying about not all trips for good home-style chicken being as good. My last trip to Stroud's I didn't think was as good as in past and said so to the group I was with. Well silly I as they pointed out, because they all thought it was an excellent meal. The next day after some thought I came to gripes that it wasn’t the meal I wasn't happy about, it was the overall crappy day I had just went through. So I have tried to turn over a new leaf in my life and unless in a good mood while full of jocularly, I will refrain from saying a meal at a local establishment was bad until I have really gave the matter some thought. I mean when your mood is foul, won’t one’s tastes as well tend to be a little fouled?

Re: “Stroud's pans for new customers in southern OP

When are they going to do a spicy chicken recipe?
All KC people wish to know because while the plain fried recipe is OK a spicy recipe would make it that much better. Please make this happen Charles.

Re: “At Harrah's, '37 Steak tries to lure high rollers

We stopped in on Saturday night for a drink, and Michael did a great job of finding one my wife would like as well as serving me a housemade soda that I'd be happy to drink at any of my favorite restaurants. There is definitely some degree of disconnect between the current lighting/decor and what many think of as the hipster craft cocktail/dropper bottles on reclaimed wooden surfaces aesthetic, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. It's a casino, so we watched a lot of people come in for their usual drink, which they got, but then ended up trying something new and being delighted with it. From a business perspective, people stayed longer and drank more, and from a service perspective they learned their bartenders name and there was a lot of great talk about booze. Win-win.

The one thing I'd add in case the Yelp/Urbanspoon/Review sensitive corporate powers that be are checking back, and they usually are.....as God is my witness, you have got to change that fucking soundtrack in the bar. It has been the same Night at the Roxbury, droning, PTSD-inducing horror of early 90's former Soviet bloc shit the last two times I've been in there. If you are trying some sort of Manchurian Candidate experimentation, or have an inordinate number of mail order brides coming in from said former Soviet states and want it to feel like home for them as they meet their new husbands, you literally could not be doing a better job. But if neither of those things are required in order for you to satisfy your key demographic, then change the goddamn music. To anything. The theme from Barney would be a step up. I'm not the guy who mentions things like this just to be a smartass. I'm the other guy.

On the way out, the food probably looks the same as any other other restaurant.

Is this a positive review or negative? After reading the review I wouldn't go to this restaurant, but I'm not sure that's what the author intended. Not to say he has to intend one way or the other, but the schizophrenic prose was confusing.

We ate there a few weeks ago after winning a bit at the casino. It was darn good.

I'll be honest, I'd love to hear fake Craig Glazer's take on this new stake joint after he takes a couple of his young broads there before Sexy Saturday at Voodoo Lounge.

"it won't rub everyone right"

That's for sure. If you're going to give me what you think I should have instead of what I ordered, I hope you're willing to pay for it too. If I want your help deciding what to drink, (or eat) I'll ask for it.

Re: “Marv's Original Delicatessen reaches for authenticity in Leawood

I assume you know that this deli has been closed permanently. We ate there several times, and we are not surprised that it closed.

Wow, so this is what I've been missing since I've not been back to KC for way too long?
Time for me to make reservations and grab a flight!

Re: “Newport Grill summons PB&J's glory days

"Almaco jacks are farmed/ranched near the Island of Hawaii under the brand name Kona Kampachi as a domesticated alternative to wild tuna. Global production reached 1,000,000 pounds (450,000 kg) in 2008. Almaco jack can cause a disease in humans called ciguatera through bioaccumulation of ciguatoxin produced by a microscopic organism called dinoflagellate. They have never been commercially harvested on a large scale and are abundant in the wild.[2] Farmed Almacos on a controlled diet are free of dinoflagellates.

These fish have among the best feed-conversion ratios ever achieved. With no selective breeding at all, the amount of fish required to produce one pound ranges from 1.6:1-2:1, ten times better than the observed ratio for bluefin tuna. The resulting meat has a fat content of around 30%.[4]

They grow in diamond-shaped net pens moored to the sea bottom 800 feet (240 m) below. The area experiences strong currents that mitigates the impact of the waste that the fish drop."

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Gareth, you're mistaken sir. The imperial pint (568 mls) is used in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to some extent in other Commonwealth nations. In the United States, two pints are used: a liquid pint (473 mls) and a less-common dry pint (551 mls). Each of these pints is one-eighth of its respective gallon but the gallons differ and the imperial pint is about 20% larger than the US liquid pint. This difference dates back to 1824, when the British Weights and Measures Act standardised various liquid measures throughout the British Empire, while the United States continued to use the earlier English measures. The imperial pint consists of 20 imperial fluid ounces and the US liquid pint is 16 US fluid ounces, making the imperial fluid ounce about 4% smaller than the US fluid ounce. Hope this helps.
