I'll assume that my prior post on Hooters was "accidentally" deleted, not purposely erased due to someone's snobby reaction to the Hooters concept.
Personally, I see no reason why we all can't enjoy and discuss the exotic flavors of the French Laundry AND the unique pleasures of Hooters. Sometimes I feel like Fois Grois and sometimes I feel like spicy buffalo wings served by lovely ladies.
I think it's valuable for other people to know that Hooters -- whose presence in SF was LONG overdue -- delivers value both in food quality and ambience. I like beatiful women serving me food and that shouldn't disqualify me from tastefully discussing Hooters on this Board.
So, I give Hooters a thimbs-up.
