Time Out's "EatOut" Awards--Jade
That's ridiculous. We don't need that kind of misleading press for a restaurant scene that is already underwhelming.
I think the magazine has to have reviewed it before they add it to any lists. If Danny Borwn wasn't reviewed, then it won't get on the list. But I'll be honest, I'm glad Jade's on the list. It may not be as good, but it's definitely not bad. Better than a lot of Manhattan places. And better it than no FH restaurants at all. If Jade fails then I highly doubt that the space will be re-leased to something as financially iffy as a restaurant unless it's a chain. So the Chowhound badmouthing may result in a Chili's.
Time Out did review DB in this week's issue and gave it a good review, so perhaps it will qualify for next year's awards.
