ORDER! ORDER IN THE FOOD COURT!!!

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

ORDER! ORDER IN THE FOOD COURT!!!

Postby blunt » Mon Sep 08, 2008 5:54 pm

Bright orange lamps and mint green chairs, like a '70s bachelor pad without the Esquivel soundtrack..
Nothing special.
Guy handing out teriyaki chicken chunkc on a toothpicks.
But: finally, authentic fake New York pizza has arrived in Madison!
You know how shameful it is when you find yourself in New York eating a slice of Sbarro's?
The shame is over!
I can finally eat fake New York pizza right here in Madison, a place that pretends it's New York!
It is really pretty good.
My mouth especially likes stuff drowned in extra sauce.
But the crust seemed oddly familar.
Digiorno's?
My intimate companions and I suddenly chimed in unison:
"TASTES LIKE FROZEN!"

Feeling Lucky, food court punk?

The west side food court has no less than 3 places to get chicken stir fry, 3 places to get a roast beef sandwhich, and a god damned mcdonalds even though there is one right across the street. angle just right and you can see it from the inside of the food court...

And I think at least two of them are owned by the same people. The "cajun" place and the "japanese" place serve essentially the same food, they just pour different sauces over the top. And they're both about as far from the kind of food the pretend to be as one could get.
