Bad Restaurant Names

johnb | Aug 1, 2010 12:08 PM

I just saw a reference to a new restaurant called "The Cork and Cleaver." To me, a name like that says "don't eat here, the food is out of date and really bad." I can't explain exactly why, it just does. "House of China" is another one that leaves me wondering.

Do restaurant names sometimes tell you, even if you know nothing else about the place, to run the other way? Or perhaps the opposite, that the food is likely to be really good?
