Put a `steak' in it
Walked out of McDonald's near 46th St and 7th Ave in NYC today. Took way too long to get one steak taco. Calling it fast food is a misnomer.
Horror at Fushimi
Not worth the trip
The place looks nice enough, but the standoffish staff and lackluster food made for a disappointing experience. And for the small fortune we spent, we could have eaten with an Iron Chef. - Jess

Minetta Tavern
I've been meaning to check out Minetta Tavern for quite some time. It's always packed, but one recent night we managed to squeeze in for an early dinner. We were seated in the back room, which is rather dark & dank. The clientele resembled a senior center. And while our appetizers and Minetta Burger were top notch, a bar steak we ordered was not. It was so salty that it was nearly rendered inedible. It's really not worth the hype. Sorry, Charlie. - Grim

Use Your Noodle
Stopped into Happy Wah, a run-of-the-mill spot for Chinese food on Delancey. What caught my eye was the woman behind the counter using the phone and cash register as she filled those little wax paper bags with crispy fried noodles. No gloves. Just her bare hands. I'll have to think twice before dropping those noodles into my chop suey next time around. - Grim

The Invisible Man
I hate places that make you feel invisible. But I urge you to fight back. I did during a visit to a Starbucks on 43rd St & Broadway. I felt lucky. I was the only person on line. I paid for my Dopio Con Panna (yes, I like whipped cream) and proceeded to wait on line... and wait... as two workers yapped behind the counter. The waitress seemed surprised when I asked for my money back. So, did the barista. I told him he took too long and walked out, never to return. Who's the dopio now - Grim

Taking Over
I noticed that no one seems to be using this site, so I've decided to make it my own. For all intense and purpose I am Grim, and being that I tend to eat out quite a bite I have no shortage of tales to tell. But feel free to add your two cents about your grim eating escapades.

Horror at Mr. Tang
Going downhill
Used to love their pork fried rice. But the last time the rice tasted old, the carrots were mealy and there was virtually no pork. Come on guys you can do better than that - Tim

Horror at Rickshaw Dumpling Bar
Not impressed

Horror at Wendy's
The WORST
This has got to be the worst Wendy's in the city. A 15-20 minute wait is the norm, especially during non-rush times. Clueless workers goofing off as your food gets cold. An even more clueless manager who cannot even control his staff. If it wasn't convenient I'd never go back here again... signed Tortured
Horror at Di Fara Pizza
Di Fara's shut down
The Daily News reports Di Fara's in Brooklyn has been shut down for 67 health violations. How can something so grimy taste so good?
