Here at Chowhound, we are far too positive. I'd like to focus a little bit on the negative. I do this not because I'm an evil person or I hate myself or anybody else but because is our prerogative to PREVENT the discerning reader from attending any of the establishments that we find unacceptable even by a gringo's standards. Please. Enlighten me.
Shall I begin?
I find every italian restaurant I've ever been to on the west side of Colombus street appalling. I find Barney's burgers to be absolutely rank. I think Panda Express should be evaporated as well as anything else in the god-awful UCSF food court. I think Luisa's Italian on Union is a pathetic excuse for whatever it's posing as. I think Mediterranée on Fillmore is awful as well.
That's enough for now.
Once again, I apologize for the negativity, I just feel like inquiring minds have a right to know [my feelings].
