    False. Last night was good. I had multiple, objectively bad (no one was happy) meals prior to that.

    Me: (galaxy brain) hey guys there's this overhyped restaurant that I really don't care for and it's also quite expensive.

    you: (tasteless rube) Oh okay, that's weird I don't know anyone IRL who didn't enjoy it. You should probably go somewhere else for your $300 meals.

    Me: no thanks I'm going to go 6 times in a year.

    If this is targeted at me, it's worth noting I didn't pay for the meal. I also didn't choose the restaurant, although I did want to give it a shot based on this thread.

    Haven't had it but I'm sure its great

    Angel BIscuits
    St. Louis Style Pork Ribs
    BBQ Okra
    Pinto Beans
    Braised and Grilled Short Rib (I think this is the one that comes with the while bbq jalapeno sauce)

    been a few months since I've been there so a bunch of stuff I haven't had on the menu. I don't go there as often as Oranjello

    The Iberico is phenomenal as is the beef rib. I’ve only been once, and other than cocktail service being a bit behind, everything was fantastic. Just a really great experience.

    Doing Ovenbird Saturday night which I’ve not had yet. Pretty excited.

    Ovenbird rules. It's my favorite spot for a last minute date night or a pre-concert dinner.

    You must’ve been wearing a disguise. Usually they see you walk in and say “hey it’s that guy with dry feet, let’s fuck up his food again.”

    went to Sol Y Luna after the game Saturday and it exceeded my expectations. The beef Flautas were ridiculously good.

    I've been curious about it. I absolutely loved the old place before Guillermo passed away. He was awesome. I went in one night, on a date, and they were about to close. She just wanted a margarita and I ordered a shot of tequila. We ended up staying two hours after close and tried every tequila in the place. He kept insisting I try one more. Had an incredible time and wouldn't let us pay. It was amazing. Also, I got some that night.

    Hot Take: Ovenbird sucks. The food is average. The service is terrible.

    It’s probably been a year since I’ve been there, but other than a rogue production assistant, I’ve only had great service there.
