This is Gawker's cheeky review of the Central Park Boathouse. It's by the same writer who did the TGIF mozzarella stick endurance challenge.
I don't find this quite as funny, but have to admit - the idea of someone referring to themselves seriously as a 'hardcore gastrophile' is a new one for me. http://gawker.com/the-best-restaurant...
Wow, that was some tough going. A pile of smug, "oh, aren't we witty", self-referential rambling masquerading as a restaurant review. I give it one star.
"Gastrophile" is on the Merriam-Webster site as a "new word". First time I've seen it (or heard it) also.
that was hard to read - ugh I guess there may be a review in there somewhere but I don't care to find it
I hate people who make fun of waiters - even waiters obnoxious enough to use the term "hard core gastrophile" double ugh
can we just abbreviate it to HCG and bring it into common parlance? That would be awesome
I'm inviting a few HCG friends over tonight for cocktails and lamb tagine
or Hey I'm going to be in Brooklyn on Tuesday for a bachelor party and me and my HCG friends would like to start the night with some premo oysters - any recs?
