Pretention Quotient Peterb Remix

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.
