From Angie Ryan, an ode to the burger at Street…
“Sometimes a girl just needs to eat
A big fat juicy slab of meat
When that urge hits me
I go out and gets me
A freshly grilled burger at Street
While you wait for your burger you can smell it grilling
When your tummy is grumbling that smell does some killing
Then you chow the house down, and boy is it filling.
(I say no to fries
With tears in my eyes
But my belly can’t handle the double billing.)”
From Tori Tsu, and the imaginary play (H)omelet ☺…
“To eat, or not to eat (out): that is the question.
Whether ‘tis better to dine at Nopa
And savor the Little Fried Fish and Herbed Chicken,
Or to imbibe in the Blood & Sand.
And by dining, end hunger? To dine, to drink;
Perchance dessert? Ay, there’s the bill.”
From Johanna Kenrick…
“Oh palate! My favorite treat.
Where food, wine and people meet.
Tasty jars and charming plates,
Let’s have dessert and stay out late!
No need to rush, ignore the time,
Sit back, relax, enjoy the wine.”
From Annie Happel, to the tune of “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga…
“I wanna dine at Kokkari tonight please!
Fresh Greek flavor for all to savor, pita, lamb and feta cheese.
Amazing service, cozy booths and a crackling fire are just the start.
After baklava and ouzo, Kokkari’s surely won your heart.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
OpenTable finds my table, I’ll eat as much as I am able
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh,
OpenTable finds my table, I’ll eat as much as I am able.”
And, from yours truly…
“I love Veritas and I cannot lie.
You other diners can’t deny.
When the sommie walks by with a bottle of Richebourg on his waist
and a corkscrew in your face
You get sprung.”
