Honest Foodie’s Review of Dirt Candy

If I could give zero stars I would. I live in the neighborhood on Orchard St. and own a bar/restaurant on the block as well and was excited to experience Dirt Candy amidst all the hype…All for not. This place is just a big scam for trendy wanna be’s and faux-hipsters and vegan-fraud followers- LUCKILY FOR DIRT CANDY THERE IS A HUGE MARKET FOR THESE TASTELESS PEOPLE…it was my 1st time there & never the less I had been excited about going from all the buzz which can usually go either way…   1st off they are not a $$$,  they should have $$$$ or $$$$$ because they are super expensive & remember it is just vegetables- and the portions are minuscule… We called to get a reservation and were pretty much told to take a hike- “RUDE, ARROGANT, POMPOUS ATTITUDE THAT YOU DON’T GET AT PLACES LIKE DANIEL & JEAN GEORGES you get there at Dirt Candy…The food was pretty good but not $150 for vegetables good…it’s a sham. You will break the bank here- be forewarned.   This is what happens when a pseudo-celebrity so-called-chef deep fries broccoli and puts Korean bbq sauce on it or puts Brussels sprouts on a hot stone with lettuce so you can then make your own tacos hahahahaha awful…and THEN charges you an arm and a leg for it and serves them with the worst service possible- how? because they sneak in the gratuity at the end! That policy just gives servers and bartenders the ability to bring their attitudes to work with them and it shows… I really wanted to like this place…I just can not. & whatever interest I had in meeting the owner has all evaporated…ugh…shame on them. I have never…I can’t even…

We make veggie tacos but brussels sprouts? Blegh. “It’s a sham.” Well, their choice of restaurant for the obligatory PR twitpic pretty much says it all, doesn’t it? It’s less to do with the quality of the food and more to do with Amanda Cohen’s network. Then SoFail pimps one of her old workplaces, the overrated tourist trap known as the McKittrick Hotel. If they could charge you for the air you breathe in there they would! No dialogue, just interpretive ‘dance’ with streakers and fake blood *yawn*. But, but SoFail was the Creative Director @ Punchdrunk, dontchaknow…except she wasn’t. Fucking PR amateurs…
