  1. I never did understand the "be rude to your customers" bit that the SoundBites owner does. Yeah, I know you're trying to turn tables and people are waiting. But taking almost-empty plates away from people and telling them they're done? (Yes, it's happened,although not to me - a friend had it happen to them) Yeah, I'll stick with Kelly's Diner should I want breakfast in that area.

    The fact that Mizra says he doesn't want to be civil with his business neighbor says volumes.

    1. re: LindaWhit

      I prefer BSB over SoundBites anyway - this is just one more reason, besides having the better food.

      Of course, none of this is good for anyone's business...I guess one more reason to avoid the whole block and head to the Neighborhood in Union or Supreme Kitchen on Highland.

    2. The whole thing really sucks, because backing out of Food Wars means that nobody on that block gets any TV time. Mike at BSB said he would pretty much do anything to get the Travel Channel out to Somerville, but Yassir pulled out of the whole thing. I think that whole block needs to get on his back so he'll change his mind again!
      As far as it coming to blows, I really wish it hadn't... I don't like getting stared down by the line at SB while I'm waiting to get in to BSC!
