what I don't understand is how banks keep funding all those restaurant startups. they can't possibly all pay off. what's the scam?
commented on Where Should This Nice Slog Reader Get Some Delicious Celebratory Crab?
I don't know about the crab at Taylor's but the oysters in the tanks are disappointing. For all the excellent super-fresh oysters available in restaurants in this town nowadays it's incredible that buying them that fresh yourself is so difficult. Tank oysters taste like tank water. That's what's in them. Iced oysters get desiccated quickly. The farmer's markets have the best but why havent' the retail outlets figured out how to maintain and sell a fresh oyster?

A couple 2" fruits on Brandywine (grafted). Tall shelling peas best year ever; buckets of them. Potatoes not so happy, rot starting in already, why do I bother with them?

But wait. It's an Oyster House. How were the friggin' oysters? Varieties? Price? Condiments? Tanked or fresh?
