Anyway, on to the mailbag: A few commenters asked whether I actually snicker at the "I'm never going to watch this show again" comments. Well, half of me does in that I know it's usually not true. Like me, even when a show disappoints me, I always come back. I'm talking to you, Real World. (P.S. Is anyone else loving Real World: Hollywood?)
The comments do sometimes make me sad because contrary to popular belief, we'd actually rather get positive comments than negative ones.
Next: Linda wrote: You mentioned Dave Martin's macaroni and cheese. He was always one of my favorites. Does he have a restaurant open now, and if so, can you tell us where to find it? Thank you. posted on June 4, 2008 at 8:23 AM.
Why yes, Linda, he does. Dave Martin opened Crave on 42nd in NYC this past year. I've heard nothing but good things, and you can try the famous "Dave's Black Truffle Mac 'n' Cheese" there. Let me know if you go!
Finally, I was actually shocked at the anti-red-meat-eating sentiments towards my fellow diners at Tramonto's. While all of my friends had different diet restrictions, I asked them which restaurant they all wanted to go to, and they all agreed on Tramonto's because of the fish options. They all went home happy!
Again, I want to apologize for my lateness on this as I know I am counted on sometimes as having my blog up quickly after the show or the next morning, so I do appreciate your patience. Hopefully I can divulge some A-List behind-the-scenes info next week!
