Sometimes it's nice to eat in a mediocre yuppie joint where the food may be average, but at least it's consistent. Personally, I am not a fan of the 'burbs, but even I'll admit to eating at Chilis. I'd wait in line for their Southwest eggrolls for at least two hours, if not more.



Yes.



To be blunt, I find Rachael comical. Part of me thinks she makes outlandish claims entirely humorously. Part of me thinks she makes outlandish claims just to get people angry. Part of me thinks she makes outlandish claims because she truly believes what she says. Either way, I don't want it to stop. It's far too entertaining to me. Perhaps, most of all, I'm impressed with her dedication to stick to her guns regardless of how insane the claim may be and despite all evidence to the contrary. It truly is an amazing thing to witness.

The food chains still have good food. I go there sometimes. I also go to the mom and pop local restaurants. It just depends what your tastes are and what you're in the mood for. I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of.

The dedication to proving points is just your typical NY attitude that other people have besides me, lol.

I mean, what other city do its residents get into a heated argument for almost an hour about the best way to get from point a to point b? Yeah, usually NYers lol. We waste a lot of time arguing, and I'll admit that lol.

Because... well... NYC has the most, the best, the biggest of everything. NYC is the center of the universe. The 'burbs are anyhow.

Maybe someday you'll get a Grimaldi's pizzeria there too
You are truly, truly ignorant if you think this.

But, you have never been here so you wouldn't know.

It doesn't matter if it's the same restaurant; it still tastes different outside of NY. I've had the same restaurants outside of NY and it still didn't taste the same. It's in the water, as most restaurant owners say

They invented a machine to replicate the water for the other locations. I actually just ate there a few weeks ago, and it was excellent!

We get our water from the mountains of North Georgia, and our pizza and bagels taste exactly the same as yours do.

New York does not own the patent to clear mountain water.

The Brooklyn Paper: Grimaldi’s to go (to Manhattan)

I've eaten in both locations, and if it was different I didn't notice.

On the other hand, I made the mistake of eating at Dallas BBQ in NYC. That was an abomination. Every region has their own great specialties, neither is better nor worse.
