  1. Saw this headline and wondered if it was for real or an April Fool's joke.

      Check the link to the Hollywood Reporter if you need further assurance.

      And besides, if I were doing an April Fool's Joke - it would be a lot juicier than that.

        I meant that I saw the HR headline and wondered if it was an April Fool's joke. I'm sure you could do much better.

    2. Would be pretty cool if true, and not an April Fool's joke.

      1. I found their NYC restaurant to be totally overrated. The wait times were ridiculous and the food fell well short of a number of LA gastropub-type establishments. It was over-salted to the point of being laughable.

          I felt it to be overrated as well. The burger was disappointing but at least they did chicken liver toast and deviled eggs properly.

          1. re: Johnny L

            They really do know their way around a deviled egg, don't they?

        2. I find the NYC restaurant both very good and overrated. It isn't *awesome* but it is very good American/ized food.

            I had friends who lived around the corner so I use to eat there often.

            I was always happy with my meals there.

            But this was around 8 years ago.

            Perhaps what was good then is overrated now?
