Probably was a good teaching opportunity!

I put in the names of all the Seattle restaurants I could think of off the top of my head. Only The Herbfarm had no "red criticals," just a couple of "blues," each on a separate occasion. This isn't encouraging: Campagne had a few "red criticals," and I've eaten there. Glad I found out about Canlis, though.

I'm not trying to say that violations are OK, but I imagine that if you looked at comparable data for high end restaurants in any city, you would see about the same frequency of violations.

The best record I've seen so far is Nishino, one blue violation two years ago. For whatever reason, I haven't been able to locate a record for Le Gourmand. Do you think Bruce is operating without a liscence? :raz:

Most women don't seem to know how much flour to use so it gets so thick you have to chop it off the plate with a knife and it tastes like wallpaper paste....Just why cream sauce is bitched up so often is an all-time mytery to me, because it's so easy to make and can be used as the basis for such a variety of really delicious food.
