“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

Prime Rib
A steakhouse that’s best when enjoyed while using an expense account

We bid pompous customs goodbye

When the last of their advocates die,

But there’s still one more place

That will say it straight-faced:

Nice jacket, but where is your tie?

If you don’t have one with you, you pig,

They’ll wrap you with one that you’ll dig—

Hèrmes might be nice,

and no matter the price;

They’re positioned as that kind of gig.

Get ready to deal with the staff;

They might glare you down if you laugh.

But when check-time arrives,

They’ll be trading high-fives

Over dinner’s long, cruel epitaph.

Prime rib is the one thing to eat;

It’s a freakily thick, fatty treat.

Don’t let yourself slip

And request New York Strip,

’Cause they don’t even dry-age that meat.

Now places like this are just done.

The war’s over—and casual’s won.

And though we might long

For the tuxes of song,

Our food is best done by the young.

The hammer on this coffin’s nail

The true sign the Prime Rib would fail

Was the bittersweet end

Of the lobbying trend,

That left Abramoff’s wallet in jail.
