Reader: Another Bitter and Pretentious Review
Baur's Restaurant and Listening Lounge moved into the historic Baur's building this year.
The dual missions of Baur's Restaurant and Listening Lounge are made clear in its name — but it's not easy combining the two in a single space, as Gretchen Kurtz noted in her recent review of Baur's, which moved into a historic downtown space this year and has already made some changes. And readers are split, too. Says Steve:
I have been to the Baur's space when it was the Victory American Grill and the room does seem to be suited for more of a music lounge than a restaurant. It should be one or the other. There's nothing more irritating than live loud music when you're trying to enjoy a nice dinner.
But Kem has no problem coming up with a single opinion of Kurtz's review:
No surprise, another bitter and pretentious review by Kurtz.
Have you been to Baur's? For the music? For the food? What did you think of the place? Of Kurtz's review?
