Re: “Bluefin's New Korean Menu

I'm glad you had a good experience. My recent experience there was the complete opposite. We went for dinner before the Tom Petty concert. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant and patio. The bartender walked out while we were there. The food was mediocre at best. The Korean beef tacos were terrible with absolutely no Korean seasoning or sauce. Tables all around us were just getting up and walking out. Food kept coming out wrong to other people around us. It got to be almost comical.

If I can get buckwheat soba noodles there, I foresee a happy tummy future.

Re: “Majestic Owners Plan New Concept for Beale Street Landing

The entire space needs a taste makeover. From the trashy gift shop to the prior restaurant that used to hand print signs and tape them around the space their is a lack of presentation. Of course the ugly orange box sitting on top of the building was a RDC add on and not in the original design. Translation: RDC has no taste.

Re: “Zaka Bowl Expands Menu, No Longer Vegan

I look forward to trying it. The cult of veganism is blind to its own shortcomings.

Re: “Zaka Bowl Expands Menu, No Longer Vegan

It sounds like he was going to close unless he made the change, so your option is no restaurant like Zaka Bowl or one that serves two non-vegan items.

Re: “Izakaya to Close


Holy crap, they really did have sushi and meatloaf on the same menu and then were surprised they were utilized as a fast-casual instead of fine-dining

I thought that was some kind of joke, but no, they really did that.

Probably best for everyone it ended as fast as it did with that level of decision making in the executive position.

BTW, now I really wanna know what smokey pulled pork would taste like in a sushi roll topped with BBQ sauce.

Re: “Izakaya to Close

@barf - my comment regarding likes/dislikes has nothing to do with your concern (or lack thereof) with your post's popularity but with its clearly unsuccessful execution and delivery of your intended message.

My concern lies with the negative, self-defeating, antagonistic attitudes too many people in this town have about living here. It's easy to bitch and be sarcastic and make negatively-toned jokes - but what does that accomplish? Sarcasm can be a wonderful tool but it can be incredibly passive aggressive, too. But hey, you seem to enjoy attempting to clarify your point(s) over and over in lots of different articles on this here website thingy, so carry on....

Re: “Izakaya to Close

Being a non business type I watched with great interest as this old diamond got her shine back. I wondered what kind of restaurant deserved such a place. Sushi never figured into my figuring. I just hope the house survives the folly.

Re: “Izakaya to Close

In general, I am not concerned with whether my comments are liked or disliked. The inability to appreciate context and realize certain subtleties is as much (if not more) a criticism of the reader as it is the author. If one stamps satire as such just so everyone can play along, it ceases to be satirical.

Maybe not being quite so concerned with comments associated with an article would help reduce the angst this situation has generated.

Re: “Izakaya to Close

Sorry, @barf - if you have to explain it, then it wasn't a very successful attempt a humor or sarcasm. Based on the number of dislikes of your comment, clearly others took yours at face value as well. Maybe a direct reply @FUNK would have helped relate the comments. Otherwise it just exists in a, er, sous vide?

Re: “Izakaya to Close

Consider the post to which you are referring and its relation to the comment from Funk which immediately preceded my own. Now imagine a satirical spotlight being cast in the same direction. Get it?

Re: “Izakaya to Close

@barf - Memphis is a dump and you can't sell quality here, huh? Weird you run your own dining blog if your opinion is that everything here is such crap. I'm sure the restaurants you patronize would LOVE to know your true feelings about their businesses....

Re: “UberEATS Entering Memphis Market

One way this will be different is that Uber drivers will already be available for it and are paid per run. Take Out Taxi had to have people on the clock just in case an order came in. Which meant that they were just hanging out (making an hourly wage) and waiting for a phone call to come in and then they would have to figure out how to best time out a delivery.
Plus in the 90s you could get pizza or chinese food delivered without a delivery charge. Now, a delivery fee is pretty common so people don't balk at paying $6 to get something better delivered.

Re: “UberEATS Entering Memphis Market

How is this different from the failed "Take-Out Taxi" business from the 90s? The restaurants didn't really make the To-Go orders a priority. It would mean long wait / delivery times and your order was often cold or incorrect. It's a good idea, but the businesses weren't /aren't incentivized to provide the same service as to dine in guests.
