Yum. Where is everyone?

We just had a great dinner--smoked trout salad (light but satisfying), kielbasa burger (enough sausage to make a statement, not so much as to overwhelm the burger-y goodness), borscht, and pierogi. Everything, honestly, very good and kind of special. Time had been taken even with the applesauce that accompanies the pierogi--it was reduced to an intense, tart, delicious, a superapplesauce. The atmosphere is nice--weird music choice (I like Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and Johnny Cash, but it was strange to have oldies, like a theme restaurant, almost)--but it's almost empty. Good for crowds but nice for dates, too. I really liked it.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
