Defending the Uptowner; Galatoire's Taste of NFL

UPTOWN? "I hope the Uptowner's awful noisy neighbors wind up in a hell that is nothing but package liquor stores and parking lots and no left turn signs with intermittent S&WB roadwork blocking every intersection. Real restaurants bring quality of life to neighborhoods." An Anonymous Commenter on Greg Sonnier's Permit/Zoning dramas. [EaterWire]
