Re: “Rolf and Daughters Slapped with Wage and Hour Suit

The Saint is right that this can happen, especially when a cook is young and possibly inexperienced. That doesn't make it legal though. And it doesn't make it as a best practice.

A chef friend with an excellent resume talked to R&D last year before moving back to town and saw this coming from a mile away--my friend took a different job with crazy long hours but has been paid for all of them.

Re: “Elise Tyler's portraits show a Nashville in the throes of neighborhood transition

@Barnsworth--yikes--I don't think we are as far off in opinion as you think! I certainly was not trying to play Cesar Chavez and I think you are right that maybe the anger should be towards the scene, not Elise. Still, I think she added to the general annoying tone of the article.

I just don't think the comparisons to Williamsburg and Echo Park are accurate. I think fringe and periphery seem like an exaggerated description. I live and work in this neighborhood and the people moving in are not artists and counterculture members. They are though, as you said, young people looking for affordable housing unavailable in other parts of town. Myself included. But what I see mostly are builders building as many houses as possible, asking outrageous prices for them and getting it because (this is honestly not directed at you) people moving here from larger metropolitan areas consider it a bargain compared to what they are used to seeing. The affordability isn't going to last long at this rate, but I guess that is a whole different article.

But you-you leave my food opinions out of this. I said the broth was excellent-which it was that night. I was really surprised it had no pork in it. Quality japanese food? Never said that. But I also don't think eating at Pinewood Social disqualifies one from having opinions about social issues. Anyway, welcome to Nashville.

Re: “Elise Tyler's portraits show a Nashville in the throes of neighborhood transition

@Barnsworth: I think most people objected to this article for the general tone, not necessarily gentrification. I don't want to dismiss your comment because you are new to Nashville, but do you even know where this neighborhood is? It is hardly a "fringe" neighborhood on the periphery. And it isn't artists and counterculture types moving in unless it is now counterculture to buy expensive, new construction spec houses and hang out at MLRose.

Re: “Elise Tyler's portraits show a Nashville in the throes of neighborhood transition

Is this a joke? I feel like it's an Onion article with your comparing some Iphone pics of poor people in their yards to depression-era photography. The photos aren't even well-composed.

"But when poor people can have communities and a neighborhood, it creates a different vibe." Puke.

Re: “Husk's Lisa Donovan Plans a Full Schedule of Cooking Classes

Lisa is a really nice person, but I really don't see what all the fuss is about when it comes to her cooking. I will admit I am not familiar with her pastry/dessert work at Husk, which may be amazing but the Buttermilk Suppers were disappointing. The food is what I would imagine eating if a friend had me over for dinner but wasn't a professional--fine but unremarkable. There seems to be some lack of understanding balance or using acid.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Best of Bread

@ Local Foodie--Stoney River actually gets their buns fresh locally despite being a chain!

Re: “On Belmont Boulevard, Pat Martin's ever-expanding barbecue empire is in good form

That picture...yikes. I love a bologna sandwich but that looks like a slab of chocolate cake on a bun.
