Everybody's Money Is Green

RECEIVED Mon., May 7, 2012

Dear Editor,
    Re: The Midnight Cowboy restaurant review [Food, April 27]: Claudia Alarcón’s piece is entertaining enough. I just wish she had been more evenhanded when it comes to her accolades and disses; e.g., she requests a “sense of humor, for crying out loud” when she is criticized for being elitist, yet she hurls bitter morsels at “loud frat types, hipsters on cell phones.” The last time I looked, the latter’s money is as green as the former’s. The problem with newly arrived endeavors is that somehow they have to raise themselves above the established ones, claiming superior products that attract a finer clientele, forgetting there’s enough for everyone. Leave your condescension and superiority away from Sixth Street where they are a little more palatable.
