Re: “Burlington's Bluebird Tavern Has Closed for Good

Staff thrown out of a work on a brief notice? This article gives the appearance that though the business was not doing well, the employees were kept in the dark till the end date. So does this mean these staff have been moved onto the other bluebird owned businesses or given compensation till they find new jobs?

Re: “Burlington's Bluebird Tavern Has Closed for Good

When they dropped all the entrees from the menu, eliminated the awesome focaccia, and introduced those way too pricey, too small small plates it was only matter of time before they lost all their regulars and turned away all new customers. It really sucks for the staff that the complaints fell on deaf ears. This is a real good lesson for restaurant owners. You need to maintain communications and listen to your customers, instead of letting onsite management double down on bad decisions or allow them to ignore or dismiss complaints.

Always interesting to see which restaurant will be the first to close after your "7 Nights" guide hits the streets. Sorry to see that it's this one.

Re: “Alice Eats: Ocha Thai Restaurant

I'm with you on ordering khao soi on sight. Seeing that on a menu makes decision making much simpler.

Re: “Alice Eats: Ocha Thai Restaurant

I save a lot of money by reading her reviews as they make the option of eating at home a much better choice..

Alice Leavitt always leaves a slightly sour taste in my mouth. No offense but I don't think she's vthe best choice for this column.

Re: “Alice Eats: El Gato Cantina, Essex

If you're hankering for authentic Mexican, it's hard to beat "Bernie's" in Montgomery on Monday or Thursday nights. The margarita's ain't too shabby either ;)

Re: “Alice Eats: El Gato Cantina, Essex

I had a really lackluster experience at the Essex location. I couldn't bring myself to go back. The posole tasted like tepid water and I wasn't a big fan of the salsa. I was looking for something above the average fast food fare and didn't experience it.

Re: “Alice Eats: El Gato Cantina, Essex

The food is great... but no lie, I went there twice and each time they were severely understaffed. The first time I took us about ten minutes to get drink orders taken, and the second time there was literally one person working the front. I tried them at their first location and loved the food. The food is great! But they really needed a full staff before opening their doors. I'll give it one more go... I suppose.
