He has a show on WLIW or PBS. I like him, but his personality is an acquired taste. He interviews Chefs and restaraunt owners in and around NYC. Then at the end of the show he cooks something. He's not the best with a pan, but it's entertaining. Lately, he's been having the Chef's at the restaurants do the "cooking demo", they call them. Which is awesome because you see some REAL artwork. You don't get that kind of info on FN.

Why would you want to eat at a place where the chef is more entertaining and less of a cook?

What? Am I typing Swahili?

Mike Colameco is a TV show host.

He interviewed Shane McBride from Craft Steak.

When I saw the show, I was convinced to try out the place.

That's ok. Many people think I've spent a lifetime on the stuff.

I went to the Bar B Barn here in Montreal. They are supposed to have amazing ribs. All they serve are chicken and ribs with sides.

Let me say first, that the bill came to almost 80$ for two of us.

I ordered a chicken and rib combo. The plate came within minutes and he got my order wrong. By the time I looked at my plate the waiter had disappeared. I had to get up and walk around and try and find someone to get me the dinner I ordered, it took me a few minutes too. Red flag if the food comes within minutes of ordering it, unless you're at McDonald's.

I got my dish a few minutes later...The ribs tasted, looked, and had the texture of being under a heat lamp for hours. Understandable that they would make them to keep up with demand, but they tasted like yesterdays reheated ribs. They were dry and sticking to the bone like crazy. It was so nasty.

I ate one rib and pushed my plate away. Nick, who is like the human garbage can here in the house, also didn't eat his ribs.

We asked to speak with the manager. They were THAT bad.

This is where it gets worse. The manager on duty said that they had NEVER had any complaints about their food. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! There is absolutely NO restaurant in history who has not had one single complaint. She kept repeating that and avoided our comments, completely ignoring what we had to say. After about 10 minutes of arguing, yes, she argued with us (bad practice for sure.. and rude to boot), she gave us the number of the restaurant owner. She wouldn't give us a discount or wouldn't even say sorry. We didn't even get a sorry for being brought the wrong dish.

When we left we called the owner immediately, left our information, and got no call back.

Needless to say, everytime we go by we give them the one finger salute. EVERYTIME!


To add a quick note at the end, they got the orders wrong for a table of 6 next to us and they did not get what they asked for.

AND.. there are alot of french people in montreal. French Canadians are known for complaining. AS IF!!!
