We'll publish our first review by our new Cafe critic, Gretchen Kurtz, next week, and in the meantime, you'll have plenty of chew on when our point/counterpoint on tipping appears here tomorrow.
But as commenters and critics alike know all too well, there's never any shortage of material on Cafe Society to discuss.
Welcome, Gretchen. My advice: don't read these comments. Or if you do, have a thick skin and a sense of humor. Most of the folks here don't get out much.
