Bargains? If you want to tout the Cohn group, why not just go to work for them? (Or maybe you already have.)

No, I don't love the Cohns. For years, I thought their restaurants were responsible for the mediocrity of San Diego palates. I got a lot of nasty letters to the editor from the Cohns when I gave their restaurants the lukewarm reviews they deserved. (I finally realized that they were in fact giving San Diegans exactly what they wanted, hence their incredible success.I wish their restaurants' food was better, but this is how it is.)

But as to price, I'm a restaurant reviewer. I eat out all the time. I have to live within the Reader's limits on my restaurant expenses, so I look closely at what I spend. I'm not Tin Fork, I'm supposed to cover middle and upper-price restaurants, too, within those limits.

Given 11 years of this experience, I consider anything $40 and under a bargain for a moderate-price restaurant. The typical moderate price is $50 per person plus tip and tax. And you usually don't get museum tickets as part of your meal.

I did screw up here, though. At some ungodly hour of the night, I copied the Cohn's copy to the blog (mea culpa! mea culpa!) instead of rewording it from "our" to "their." I am heartily sorry and will try to do better in the future by not posting when I'm ready for bed.
