The thread on the refusal of service at Ani Ramen made me chuckle a bit. A person who wrote 6 or 7 bad reviews about a place, then get's upset when they refuse her service, then goes on to complain about that. I did chuckle a bit at the entire thread, and concept of continuing to support a place you have such contempt for, until I realized I do the exact same thing.
I'll admit, I continue to dine at a couple of restaurants that I have trashed on here, but I continue to go. Like a moth to the flame, I keep getting drawn in, only to get burned over and over and over again.
I thought it would be fun to explore what restaurants do we go to, that we really don't like. I'll start....mine is Char in Red Bank. I really do think its over priced, the quality of everything besides the steak (can be hit or miss) and raw bar items, to be sub par.
BUT the bar environment is exceptional and generally rather lively, it's close to home, and it's just good enough to keep me going back, even though I feel dirty every time I do.
So where are your dirty dinning places?
