A note about the ratings: we generally only write about the eateries we like, usually the ones we like a lot. If we don’t like it, it’s unlikely you’ll find it on these pages. Once in a while, if our opinion differs from the prevailing wisdom about a noteworthy restaurant, we’ll post a less than glowing review, but we never do hatchet jobs. Hatchet jobs are fun to read, and easy to write, but we prefer to remain hopeful and positive.
We are tough graders. While we can usually find something good about almost anyplace, we resist handing out high grades willy-nilly. So don’t view two-car ratings as backhanded compliments. We like those places!
