East Bay Express [split from SF Board]

Thanks for the report. The East Bay Express recently trashed it mainly

I might give a try based on your report. However, I was so turned off by the treatment I received when it was Taste ... given it is the same owners ... I wasn't rushing to try the new place.

Then again the East Bay Express isn't what it was. I actually HATE it now. NO ... I do not want capsule reviews. NO ... I do not want an ever changing cast of critics. John Birdsdale was just getting into his stride. The bean counters seem to have taken over.

The 'review' on Mint Leaf really, really sucked. I had to go through paragraphs that didn't have a thing to do with the restaurant to get to the 'review'.

The wonderful reviews by Jonathan Kauffman are no longer easy to get to. There is information in those reviews you won't find elsewhere. The capsules ... suck ... they really, really suck.
