For the record, here’s my list applying the criteria that psu sets out.
|Food Not Great||
Food Good or Great|
Not Pretentious||Chiodos, Dee’s Hot Dog Shop, The O||Il Piccolo Forno, Rose Tea, Tram’s Kitchen|
|Pretentious||Le Pommier, Mallorca, Cafe Sam, Church Brew Works.||Baum Vivant, Chez Gerard|
As a special case, as far as I’m concerned, if your menu says “hominy polenta” instead of “grits,” you are automatically placed in the “pretentious / food not great” category.
