Alizee, Talara and Hell Point Seafood in the paper today
I'm a little grumpy because I got an e-mail from a reader complaining about my "review" of Alizee in today's paper.
He disagreed with my "rhapsody" about the new restaurant. Apparently he wanted an inexpensive neighborhood place in the Colonnade space (I can see his point), and what he got was a boutique bistro. He ended with this pleasant sentence:
Will it last a year? A disappointment, as was your review.
I'm afraid I got on my high horse when I wrote him back (it was the end of a long day), saying that my Table Talk column isn't a review, I haven't been to Alizee yet, and he's welcome to tell me how disappointed he is in my review when I've actually eaten a meal there and written a review. ...
Anyway, if you want to read the offending Table Talk item, here it is, along with news about the soon-to-be-opening Talara in Harbor East and Hell Point Seafood in Annapolis.
I also thought you might be amused by what I had to do to the Mardi Gras Top 10, so here it is with selected comments.
