+1 on that, Captain. my S.O. is partial to the really, really funky mackerel dish -- which they used to try to talk us out of.

o me, dirty windows and a shabby appearance often means unsanitary kitchen practices.  It's the reason I won't go back to the Thai restaurant that took over the old Arunee space; it's full of mirrors and they are all filthy.

Jeez, they opened up in the middle of winter when it's hard to keep anything outside clean. Give em a break. Keeping a clean kitchen has nothing to do with streaky windows. Back of house ain't cleaning the windows, they're cleaning the kitchen. Sounds like the owner just needs to get on top of that and figure out a schedule to clean the windows. I've taken notice of the new place, and just thought it looks a little dark from the sidewalk, not that the windows are dirty.

I think Kitchen 79 is the restaurant that took over the old Arunee space, yes? I've never noticed the front of that space as being filthy, and considering it's location, even if it were a bit dirtier, I can't say I'd be surprised. If that's the restaurant you mean, you're really missing out. It's my go to place for Thai in the neighborhood.

If you're unaware of your rights, being questioned about your immigration status can be a frightening experience, even if you have the proper documentation.  I remember my grandmother's warning...  never leave home without your green card.  She was speaking from experience.

I think they need to have the menu outside. It's huge and I still have no idea what they sell.

completely illegal to do, and it's being done more and more often.

here, border patrol agents board a bus and demand ID from everyone, including citizens.

there is not one state in the country where you are required to "show your papers" to the stormtroopers.

I guess it's like a miller of wings. Like a miller like a creator of sorts. Quite a metaphor

granted, it could be nicer. but have any of you folks ever traveled? outside the US? or even to non-tourist parts of the south, midwest or southwest? when looking for good food, you don't consider the windows.

I would hope most restaurants would aspire to be better than a dirty hole-in-the-wall that happens to have good food. To me, dirty windows and a shabby appearance often means unsanitary kitchen practices.  It's the reason I won't go back to the Thai restaurant that took over the old Arunee space; it's full of mirrors and they are all filthy.

of course, clean windows would be better than dirty ones. but if we're going down this route, we also need to hit Lety's, which may have even dirtier windows (and where i shop at least three times a week).
