Parting Shots from Joanna Karlinsky (Bowdlerized Repost)

Gary Soup | Aug 20, 200301:31 AM     4

The LA Times had an article today on SF restaurant closures. Overall, it was a rehash of what we already know, the ecomomy, yada yada yada, plus maybe a hint of Southland gloating. However, the article began and ended with an account of the closing of the Meetinghouse, and it was the Meetinghouse's Joanna Karlinsky who generated the fireworks, IMHO. I've included a link to the whole article at the bottom, but will quote the provocative last two paragraphs below:

"She said she will never forget the highs — trips to the farmers market for fresh vegetables, the rush of being paid to cook for others. But Karlinsky can't shake the feeling that San Francisco let her down, that, unlike New Yorkers after 9/11, her customers didn't try hard enough to see their favorite restaurant through the hard times.

So she fired a parting shot. On the window of her now-defunct Meetinghouse remains a green-inked message: 'Thanks for your patronage. Now get used to bad service wherever else you go.'"
