In the News: West Thames Bridge

••• Oof. “If human civilization had been destroyed and the earth was a cultural wasteland, if all a young cook had to go on was a recipe collection preserved by T.G.I. Friday’s, then he might come up with this flabby mash-up of a menu, on which every overwrought dish is an amalgam of international fast-casual concepts.” —Village Voice on Tribeca Canvas

••• Related: Eater created a cat slideshow of lines from the worst reviews of Tribeca Canvas. Morimoto may be having the last laugh, however; reviewers keep noting that it’s packed.

  1. Wow. Is Tribeca Canvas really that bad? The menu has always looked a little weird and unappealing to me, but I figured it would be worth a try at some point.

  2. @Doug: Adam and I both thought the food was pretty good — but then we didn’t order the food-critic bait like the corn dogs, the shrimp nachos, the mac and cheese with poached egg, etc. I definitely think it’s worth a try.

  3. Bad publicity is publicity… Now I am going to see for myself!

  4. I thought the food was pretty good. Didn’t get to try that many dishes bc it was only the two of us dining. Good enough to go back and try some other dishes.

  5. Why are you not covering the NID tax that fat cat developers are trying to secrtly dump on us? You seem to have plenty of time on your hands. Do some reporting.

  6. @”Adam”:

  7. You linked to other stories in Tribeca Trib. I am confused. There was a huge meeting at 375 Hudson Street last night with severla hundred people and many elected officials. You shuld have bene there, or were you busy Instagramming oddities?

  8. Adam, by any chance are you a “doctor'”? Somehow I get a “doctor” vibe from you. Not a doctor vibe, mind you. A “doctor” vibe.
