    Much as I would like to claim credit for getting Metro banned, the fact is, I didn't. And he is not banned. He was timed out for his own rule-breaking stupidity (about the 200th instance). His sentence expired a while ago, so far as I know, and he has thus far chosen not to come back. Which is fine with me, needless to say.

    I agree with those who say that mm was not going after anyone's wife. He was mocking his critics on this board. The post was pretty good, I thought.

    That said, what bugs me about him (sometimes) is the way he pretends to be humble and open to new information in the abstract but in every specific instance he is defensive and spins absurd justifications/rationalizations/"explanations" rather than simply admitting he does not know everything.

    Can we agree that all that needs to be said, has been said?

    Is this MM? I know he calls himself Max, and the ages work out somewhat.

    Said it better than I could have. Piob, you know I like you, but you consistently get backed into a corner in CE. Everyone gets in situations where they can't admit they are wrong and refuse to admit it. Why do you guys rag on MM for it so much?

    BTW, my cat plays fetch. I'll have to send you a video.

    I have no idea, but I suspect he does. He had a towel on his shoulder and he was barking at staff, but by the time I was done with my lunch at 2 he was already taking a nap in his hotel room and I made the sommelier go down and get him to sign my book for me since I forgot to last time we met 6 months ago. The autograph is kinda weezy but fair enough, I made the poor guy wake up from his nap.

    welcome; we chose Ruinart rose, we both like it a lot

    Amuse bouche, as before; parsley cake, ricotta filled tube on jamon iberico. a spoon of sweet n sour pumpkin, an almondine puff, etc
    [​IMG]
    bread was good as always
    [​IMG]
    This was a mint ice cream over a brunoise of cucumber, etc - cleansing, but not necessary really. I've gotten an ice cream to open every time I've come here though, so whatever.

    John Dory in rhubarb gelee, basil - nice summer dish like I've eaten all summer as a pattern - white fish, red summer fruit, basil, it's still good
    [​IMG]
    This was crap, mayonnaise'd veggies on shredded saba; Basically tasted like cole slaw on cat food.
    [​IMG]
    Good but not a real dish; shaved champignons in mushroom mousse, etc - very mushroom-y obviously, and that was that.
    [​IMG]
    Green beans in sesame - sucked. Tasted like Korean food, just fucking doused in nerigoma, a singular flavor and a disappointment for the vegetables.
    [​IMG]
    French frog legs, not bad. With spinach, etc. I preferred the previous preparation with the creamy celeriac mousse and fresh wasabi leaves, rather than a plate of 6 legs, but I read the menu beforehand and expected this much.
    [​IMG]
    main plate was duck breast, typical bad boy shit, stewed cherry tomatoes and pekoros onions, nice jus, etc
    [​IMG]
    foie in beet gelee and potatoes
    [​IMG]
    dessert, blah blah
    [​IMG]
    more dessert

    lol, seriously, i think if there were something I don't get enough of but would like for my money, I'd choose veal tenderloin, just never see it around here enough.

    Quite an incorrect characterization and I openly admit when I'm wrong (did it just the other day). However, this is not about me and I'm not sure why I'm your focus as I actually rarely comment on M&M relative to most. Additionally, I gave him some pretty solid props for continuing to put his stuff out there.

    I'm also confused about simultaneous charges going out about being an ITG yet "crying" to the mods. /shrug

    Happy to report my homemade Portagee style chorizo was fantastic last night.
