The thing is...most of us like NYC and love visting. I wouldn't mind living there if that's where life took me to live. We just don't like big-mouthed, holier-than-thou RESIDENTS of any city. If the shoe fits...

if you dont like her then add her to your ignore list.

she should do the same

No, my friend...cookie-cutter is a design style, whether we're talking about buildings, houses, or cookies. It's mass production so that the resulting products look exactly alike or very similar. THAT is cookie-cutter. Did you learn something?

It's not a matter of where people choose to eat on friday and saturday. What could THAT have to do with something being cookie-cutter?

Get it?

More advice from a child...thank you so much, but I'll take my ample years of experience over your ignorant youth ANYDAY.

I'm not saying anything directly to either of you, unless it's accidental. I will continue to post the truth about the two of you, if that's okay with you?

Follow those links I posted previously. Manhattan has TGIFridays, Applebees and Chilis. I'd bet more than you'll make in your lifetime that those locations have a two hour wait on the weekends just like their suburban counterparts. And, don't give me any crap about the tourists being the only people who eat there. Local NYers eat more than just ethnic food from mom-n-pop eateries. 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.

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.

Wasn't aware NYC was considered cookie cutter......

You think the south has long waits ,try going to DC and going to Mickey D's or Subway. The waits are much longer.

First off why does every single person in every thread compare something to NYC?

Yes, NYC has every chain restaurant in the books

The difference is that NYC as well as all other cities have diversity with restuarants

If you go to any small city like columbia sc, athens ga, etc........ those places offer chain restaurants and very few other options

nyc as well as every big city (including atlanta) offers more than chain restaurants in anywhere u.s.a.

As a matter of fact, the VERY SAME bakery you showed in your link just opened a branch in the suburbs of GASP - Atlanta!!!!!

LOL! Alpine Bakery (http://alpinebakeryandpizzeria.com/Alpine_Bakery.html - broken link)

Yeah, because southerners want the good italian bakeries we have The thing is, we have them all over the place. You guys will have ONE NY italian bakery based out of NY. Not the same, buddy

Maybe someday you'll get a Grimaldi's pizzeria there too
