Re: “Citizen with Potential

Lisa Sipes writing is mediocre and in poor taste. Instead of being more objective, she decided to air dirty laundry of a new restaurant, something a critic should NEVER do. It is sad that Mr. Mason has not found something more stable in Bend but (another word you should never use in AP writing) you made him look bad too. Try reading some more Ruth Reichl or Mimi Sheraton before you eat & write again. And shame on you Source Weekly for allowing your writer to do this.

Re: “Citizen with Potential

Hmmm... it appears Chef Mason has a problem finding restaurant owners who appreciate his style of crafting a menu. After two weeks and he's gone says a lot about the owners and adding burgers and sandwiches reduces this restaurant to just another average place with no panache other than an old floor and newly painted walls. Good luck with that program.

Re: “A Brick & Mortar for Dump City Dumplings

Although I agree with not_so_gullible for them not being chinese-style and the fact they are not dumplings. (I'm Chinese so yes slightly offended). The bao steamed buns are still tasty, especially when you're stumbling downtown. Having them as a meal may be challenging, but I'll still stop by and give the Brick and Mortar a shot. Congrats Dump city.

@ not_so_gullible don't be so offended for people trying to be creative with food. I'm not a fusion fan myself, but every once in a while it can hit the mark. Pho is an example of the Vietnamese experimenting with pot au feu from the French, and also the bahn mi being served on a french baguette, Japanese curry rice, korean chicken wings, doner kebabs, tacos Al Pastor, deep dish pizza, etc... I look forward to more creative culinary experiences.

Re: “A Brick & Mortar for Dump City Dumplings

dear "somepeoplearejerks"...uhh...if somebody served a terrible hamburger, they wouldn't be able to get away with "lack of authenticity" as you put it. And you wouldn't be calling people who appreciate a good hamburger "culinary snobs". this is about cultural appropriation. when white people take another culture's food and make it should be recognized as shitty.

Re: “A Brick & Mortar for Dump City Dumplings

While these dumplings may not be as authentic as some culinary snobs (the above nasty reviewers included) would like, I think they are super yummy and they hit the spot more often than not. Congrats to the hard-working locals on growing their popular business in spite of the internet trolls.

Re: “Sorry to See It Go: French Market Closes

I really like Phil, but they should have improved upon the existing model of the Riverside Market. An improved menu, service, bar, and kitchen, along with the building improvements could have made this spot a huge attraction, and money maker. I wish they would have understood the hood a little better. I miss the market part of the market also. It was so convenient. Make simple high quality food, at an affordable price, and this place will be fun again, and it will flourish.

Re: “Sorry to See It Go: French Market Closes

Very sad, ate there several times last summer and thoroughly enjoyed the experience when paired with an urban bike there and back. Let's hope something new opens up soon!

Re: “Sorry to See It Go: French Market Closes

Yeah, was a total mismatch for the neighborhood. Riverside Market was awesome, casual, great food....French?...Really? No surprise here...pretty sure the Riverside Market didn't have to rely on tourists to survive. Someone buy this spot and transform it back!!!!!

Re: “Sorry to See It Go: French Market Closes

Bring back riverside market!! I really dont like the way they were so anti the people at that business aka the locals who have lived there 3 time longer than any of their customers. Such a blatant act of gentrification and not a damn care about anyone who really would bring business to them. Good riddance.

Re: “Welcome to the Empire

Bridge 99 has my favorite beers by far. They are the only reason Ive made the drive to bend since I first tasted them, especially the porters. Well and the owners are supper cool people to hang out with.

Re: “Nacho Average Tacos

The food truly is amazing at Westside Tacos. Well worth it to find out if you haven't been, or just be like everyone else and keep coming back for more because you already know.

Great article on a hidden secret in Bend. I love going there for lunch and just recently stopped in for breakfast and was not disappointed!
