Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

i'm a good tipper to a fault.  the server could fart in my soup and i'd probably still give her 18%. as a chef, i am the same. no matter how shitty the service, i always tip at MINIMUM 15%, even for shitty for service. for decent service, i am usually 18-20%, and great above average service i tend ...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha - I was doing the same thing. it was pissing me off too. everytime you would push the down button for another screen with more listings, you would see seattle mariners, san diego padres, cincinatti reds, and you would think, okay, these teams are as shitty as the royals.

perhaps. but if they are serving 200 on fridays and saturdays in the fall/holidays, and packed with parties still, they are THRIVING. weeknights, not so much.

Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

kcdcchef-- Thanks for your posts in this thread, incredibly interesting.  A friend of mine is good friends with the Savoy chef, and he's regaled me with tales of its quality and style.  Of course, he gets a little inside treatment.  I've always wanted to believe it's the old school, high class sort...

i wonder after he clears waivers, which, he probably will, does he stay on with the royals at AAA.

Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

White gloves were required by black servers for decades because they were considered too dirty to touch the food and china of white patrons.  It was seen as an acceptible restriction to justify the meeting of races across a racist barrier.  I'm not sure why anyone would still want this for their di...

^ Where would the servers go? Mr. White Gloves is going to work in P&L? Zona Rosa?  Just curious and EXTREMELY worried for Mr. White Gloves i have no idea why you are being so sarcastic and nasty about it. i just worked there for a couple of years, and know some of those servers. i remained friends...

Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

if they close the restaurant for anything longer than a month or two, it will never come back how it was. never. i can see removing the stained glass windows and putting regular glass back in, i can get that. i can see them closing the dining room for a month or so to put in new windows, redo some w...

Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

Yeah - I can see how someone might think a ten year lapse between TIF approval and sale might sound like some developer trying to take advantage and milk a profit but I really don't think that was the case here.  I think the Savoy ownership has been trying to find someone to see this through for a ...

Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

Seems to me the city has two choices: 1. They can try to withhold funds or bury the TIF as a punishment to the orignial owner for not keeping his property up to high standards, or. 2. Approve a good project that will help the development of DT....AND possibly give the neglectful owner some unjustif...

Re: Savoy Hotel to undergo $25 mil gut/resto

i personally think it is awesome that mr. lee is not only thinking of selling the savoy, but that he also is committed to selling it to someone that will restore it properly. mr. lee, to his credit, restored the restaurant quite nicely. many of you may not think so, but it had fallen into disrepair....

18th & Broadway Community Garden + Housing

It's fine.  I would have just rather seen the tower go up.  I think the Crossroads area is so underutilized and overrated.  It needs more density. It doesn't have to be 17 story 500k condos either.  But grass and tomatoes?  I guess it’s better than a parking lot. DST needs to learn how to stop tear...
