Agreed. I disagree with just about everything else you've said, but I agree with that. I've liked every one of Berge's restaurants and in these times, the fact that most of them just last and last indicates that something more than hype and luck is involved.
But be that as it may, some people just can't get over the NIMBY thing. If I lived out there I'd be happy about it. My secret wild hideaways keep getting built over as the years go by, but sometimes it's not always for the worse. If they think that little patch is "wild" they really should get out into the woods more often. And they should re-evaluate what living in a city entails.
Having said that, every process needs some sort of modifier that puts the brakes on so it doesn't run out of control. There has to be an opposition side just to give the other side a reason to explain themselves.
