You’d be surprised (or maybe not!) how frequently Hitler is referenced in restaurant reviews submitted to MenuPages, even though it pretty much guarantees an automatic rejection of the review. But to reference Hitler and Stalin and Peoria for good measure deserves special recognition. This one, entitled “All the charm of the Airport,” was left for a restaurant in Manhattan’s Financial District:
The food at this financial district eatery is good but so boring I could have sworn that I was eating at an Applebees in Peoria. However, the service is what truly sets this giant apart from all the other places to get lunch downtown. I’m not sure if the staff were all members of the Hitler Youth or they have Stalin managing the restaurant, but normally to be treated this badly you’d have to pay someone with a whip and a leather mask several hundred dollars for the hour. Needless to say the service is terrible, and for the prices you are paying for your fajita, you inevitably wonder if all the money is going to pay the rent or the snail slow staff’s addiction to qualoids. Nonetheless, the restaurant itself is very nice. So if you like to be served chain restaurant style food and be treated like garbage but in a very nice setting, there are many more airport terminals better suited for the purpose at only a fraction of the price.
For the record, we’re pretty sure the reviewer was referring to qualudes, a barbiturate-style drug that was popular in the 70s and 80s. How dated! But representative of the awkward references and over-the-top metaphors this reviewer uses to make a point, which is all but obscured by pomp and circumstance. It almost makes us want to try the place!
