Funny thing about Olive Garden. My kid used to work at one and people would travel from far and wide to eat there. And we have quite a few actual good restaurants in the area.
There are some people—I know quite a few—who only feel comfortable going to brand restaurants, like those places must have mastered how to properly prepare food or they'd never risk their reputation by serving substandard food, unlike some restaurant you've never heard of. There is a certain logic to that, I guess, but it seems like dining out of fear.
True of their food as it is prttey much thaw and reheat.

The last tweet was the best.

I once met someone who said the Times Square TGI Friday's was the best one in the country. I was blown away. I like Times Square for its audacity, but there's no way I would eat at a chain there. Or here.

There must be a means of ranking each restaurant in a franchise, but how? The appeal of those places is, fundamentally, that you're going to get the same thing at each one. Bakersfield, Omaha, Indianapolis, Little Rock, or Trenton—they have the same menu and protocol is supposed to be the same. No dangers of some scary fly-by-night operation. Determining difference in quality is a crazy task that contradicts the whole point of a chain.

It's probably just one's mindset when they go in. It's not hard to imagine that her mood was elevated from being on vacation, and that made her perceive the restaurant as better than the one in her town.

Oh of course, but it's just such a strange thing to consider, that, aside from the cleanliness of the bathrooms or the friendliness of your server, that there's any difference between a given Wendy's, Ruby Tuesday, or Subway. Difference means something's gone wrong.

It blows my mind that someone would eat at Olive Garden on a visit to New York. To me that's like going to a Red Lobster in Maine.

My friend Chris (he's one of my best friends from college and the guy I went to Depeche Mode with) lives in NYC. He LOVES Panda Express. But he refuses to eat at the one around the corner from his apartment. He only goes if he happens to be in New Jersey.

I'm really looking forward to the reboot of "Blade Runner" -- I hope I'm not going to be disappointing, but I probably will be.

If you're talking about Hubis, he's got bigger issues than Panda Express.
