Is it Bobby or the Bull and Bear? Notes after two reviews

I sometimes pick up the Epoch Times, in English. The English paper is flush in its duplication of the New York Times design (copy cat so to speak), so one gets quite a bit of restaurant reviews...and ads as well.

This is in the edition dated Dec. Friday 13, 2012. Like other weekly papers such as the Jewish presses, they begin on a Friday, unlike the daily in Chinese.

This concerns place and food.

I love Bobby Van's.

I find the offerings of meat, the cow kind, is just so delicious.

Bear and Bull's just does not keep me returning, like Bobby's grill does.

I do like ambiance of Bull and Bear, but Bobby's is more of a place that is cozy for all comers, even ones grandma, or the friends from rural developing nations.

Rounding all aspects out for dining, with red meat of the cow variety, I would have to give Ottomanelli Brothers most of my business. Perhaps its the Italian in me. The business was sold from the original Ottomanelli family, but no worry.

The Epoch Weekly is a good place for dining reviews, but sometimes they are just writing ads for those they advertise. For a paper that poises itself against what it states is wrong with China, it seems to have its own flaws.

I do not ascribe to 法輪大法 (Falugong) but check out their Dining Section. They have a ways to go before they can compete with the NYTimes.
