Review: Nothing special at Rain in Atlanta

Sometimes, a guy’s got to eat. Choosing carefully based on your desires or diet isn’t practical. So you wind up with what’s close by — in this case,close by ┬áthe Tara Cinema in Atlanta.

So we found ourselves at Rain, which bills itself as a “Thai and sushi bar.” The menu spanned at least 6 pages, all with photos, with enough decent choices. The nutritional bargain for me was the lemongrass soup. Hunting around on the web, I found what I think is the basic nutritional information. I counted it as 4 Weight Watchers points.

New York review: Red Farm has a big salad, but it’s not very good

Time to re-charge The Restaurant Dieter, and what better place to do it but New York City, where there are so many good restaurants.

One that recently opened in our neighborhood on the Upper West Side is Red Farm, which bills itself as: “Innovative, Inspired Chinese Cuisine with Greenmarket Sensibility.” Well.

It was OK. Just OK. Bottom line: there are a few dishes for us Weight Watcher types to savor, but regrettably, the chicken salad isn’t one of them.
