On my way to the post office today I saw that The Lone Star Bar and Grill will open soon at 87th and 5th. Along with the as yet unnamed "upscale Mexican" restaurant (Upscale Mexican? What, are they calling the chips and salsa an amuse-bouche?) it could be a gastronomical battle Sam Houston would be proud of.

Oh crap... I can feel the pedantist coming on from across 4th Avenue.

If you're going to dip into my second language [and yours, btw], then you should know that amuses-bouche would be hyphenated. And as you used plural in English, the "amuser"-part would also be plural. Oh, but not the mouth part as there's only one of those on us humans.

Damn it, I feel really bad now... and I know you'll get me back big time.

I wonder if they'll serve Lone Star Beer . . .

. . . and Bob Will's Music!

Bay Ridge Brit, I'm surprised you said nothing about my ending a sentence in a preposition.

Oh the British, they're so superior.

"High-end Mexican" makes about as much sense to me as "high-end Chinese". No?

A friend of mine said her entire family (kids, mother, father, grandparents) all got food poisoning from Cantina take-out the other night.
