Read Letter Day

For the record, I liked much of the food (if not the service) at John Holley's Asian Bistro, which makes the fact that they tossed the Westword rack after my review came out a little puzzling. No question, though, that the place has lots of fans, because letters like the following keep coming in: Contrary to your review of John Holley's I find the food and service excellent. I eat there on a regular basis and find the staff friendly and the food wonderful. John is almost always there and makes a point of spending time in the dinning room and handing out special samples to try.

That's nothing, though, compared to the output from fans of Snooze, which I still don't like much at all. A couple of those letters may make it to next week's paper; in the meantime, here's a sampling from "supermom":

Are you nuts? Don't know what your problem is, buddy, but you seem to be the only one that doesn't have "good taste." You will be eating "crow" when you find out later this month that Snooze has been voted the top Breakfast place in Colorado!

Better crow than Snooze's hash. -- Jason Sheehan
