Review: Seagrass Bistro

By BRIAN DUFF  |  March 21, 2012

Even though we were happy to like their restaurant, we wanted to dislike these suburbanites. They make it hard. We briefly thought we got contumelious glances when we glanced at our cellphones, but it was only some friendly teasing. Aha! Those spoiled menu-tweaking ladies seemed to complain about the bill. But actually they were insisting on paying full price after the owner had sent them a free dish. These people do not merely have more, but they have it in such a pleasant manner. Perhaps they are not, as we imagine, the nefarious authors of our doom, but the unknowing beneficiaries of social forces beyond their control? We left wondering, like Jane fleeing Rochester on the heath, whether it was better never to have known the pleasures of a way of life that cannot long be ours.

    Because music is now basically free (thanks to torrents, Pandoras, Spotifies, etc.), the only way for musicians to make money is through constant touring and related merchandise sales. Or they can appear as a judge on The Voice. Food, on the other hand, will still cost ya...

    The National Institutes of Health just published a randomized study that confirms the rumors: carbohydrates are poison and should be avoided. So how should we feel about Slab Sicilian Streetfood?

    The lessons of Lolita are that something simpler and less challenging can be lovely, and that some cheap wine could really loosen things up.
