Re: “DINING REVIEW: Sultan Lebanese Cuisine & Bakery

Thanks for the comment PixelHustler and, speaking only for my own review style, I make it a point to be as objective as possible and provide a balanced look at a restaurant without glossing over the negatives. I'm glad that came through in this piece!

It should be mentioned that Dogtown is the only place in the city that I've found to serve a vegan garbage plate! A neat meatless take on the original, it leaves you wanting a bit for grease, but it's a great alternative.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Bar food, turned up to 11

Hi George and Rochester Musician,

Technically, Chow Hound is City's dining (restaurant) news column, and is usually more news style in coverage and focuses on newer businesses in Rochester. George, you bring up an important point - and we are currently looking at how we can better differentiate our reviews from our newsy Chow Hound. In the case of Marshall Street, writer Katie Libby wanted to revisit the restaurant since she recently saw a considerable uptick in talk around the bar's food. But, like I said, we're re-evaluating if Chow Hound was the proper column for that. Thank you for your comments.

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Bar food, turned up to 11

It doesn't, Rochester Musician. And that's my point. This is the Chow Hound column, which is traditionally for dining news, not reviews. That's why it says "restaurant news" at the top of this page.

George, where does it say that a restaurant or bar must be new in order to be reviewed? And just because you know about the restaurant doesn't mean that there might not be a lot of people who don't.

"Marshall Street Bar and Grill is not new. "

That's correct. This bar is great and all, but shouldn't the DINING NEWS column try to actually report on something we don't already know about?

Re: “DINING REVIEW: Sultan Lebanese Cuisine & Bakery

I don't know if there was an editorial change, or if it's just a function of me having read a larger number of City's reviews, but things seem much more honest and less "always glowing no matter what" lately. I dig that. Reading restaurant reviews that actually mention the ups and downs of a place are much more useful.

Re: “DINING: Free to be gluten-free

Ellie's has the best bread ...they also make hamburger buns that really taste like a hamburger bun....if you are gluten free you will understand!

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Like family

It's always a treat to see the linguistics sins of City paper (see anything written by Frank). Is it too much to ask for editorial standards? True, this is Rochester--and your readers, well, not the most sophisticated. So, "panini" is plural "panino" is singular. What next, ordering one biscotti?
