“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.”

Pappas Bros. Steakhouse
As stuffy as a powdered wig, but the dry-aging and wine list we dig

We still think this a hoax

Whose tab would make even sheiks choke.

But lately we find a slight change of mind:

This steak’s gotten better, no joke.

The Prime beef is in-house dry aged,

The well-marbled ribeye’s the rage.

Wagyu’s quite pricey; the taste difference is dicey

But you probably won’t care at this stage.

The kitchen’s still somewhat impaired—

Oversalted and creamed everything, squared—

But they cook a good meat, medium-rare’s no small feat.

Still, the mark-up is grossly unfair.

The wine list deserves our redress

You can drink well for considerably less.

Better’s not darker; ignore Robert Parker!

Ask which bottle the som would suggest.

The service is kind and attentive

It should be: this place is expensive!

We’re still somewhat jaded, but can be persuaded.

(If you’re paying we won’t be so plaintive.)
