I believe trendy restaurants catering to important people will always be a problem, well at least for those that aren't important. Restaurant owners are forced to obey the laws of economics, which in this case means as long as they can maintain their trendy status (have a demand) they will continue to do business (demand). Unfortunately some become become hung up on the idea that they should put up with poor service/products just for their image. To those people I say they deserve what they get.
"In Getting the Goods," Langston likes the purity of the farmers' market to such an extent that he favors patrols to regulate those attempting to pawn off their second rate products. i find this somewhat ironic given the openness and unregulated nature of a farmers market. Langston's knowledge makes me wonder what what class of produce I have been buying...Posted by dugg0009 at June 21, 2005 1:07 AM
