It gets worse and worse. It's a 20-storey layer-cake of Nope. I've seen a lot of insane things on the Internet, but this is a banquet of them (which is ironic, considering the original meal was the exact opposite of a banquet...)

A couple of highlights:

- the chef's hilarious and ultra-pretentious response, which involved a sketch of a man on a horse: https://www.today.com/food/brutal-review-michelin-starred-restaurant-bros-goes-viral-t242696

- the fact that the horrific chef's mouth vessel is on sale on the restaurant's website, and of course has now massively sold out, because, people are weird and also it's 2021.

Jackie! That is immensely kind of you to say - and also it means a lot, considering your cred as a storyteller & teacher of craft. Thank you.

(Also: I'm sorry I risked destroying your career too. I'll be more careful with my questions in future. Well, maybe.)

I'll never eat there and I'll be questioning the beginning of everything I write. LOL.

Hooray! Then my newsletter is double the value. Usually I only freak people out in one single way. Twice is a record for me!
