Rewriting the Million Pound Menu
There was some wisdom to be gleaned from the show and the low number of investments in the competing concepts tells its own story. But that central get-rich premise is absurd and, at an abstract level, damaging in the way it sucks much of the inspirational joy and personality out of hospitality. At its most exciting, the restaurant game is less a hard-nosed business than a way in which creative people can express themselves through the medium of food, drink, interior décor, music, service. Making a profit is essential for such small businesses but that profit, most accept, will be modest.

Nice tweet, Garance Franke-Ruta, by Steve Sailer - The Unz Review
Ha, ha, ha. What a great article. Those local activists seem to hate urban trust-fund hipsters who run art galleries almost as much as most of the commenters on Steve’s blog. People can get really irritated when their rent suddenly jumps by 100%.

I think this was the best quote:

“356 Mission, they’re really f***ing smart,” he said. “In the past, they used to do black-queer events. People-of-color events. Empowering workshops on trans people. So f*** that identity s***. I don’t give a f***if someone is black or brown or queer or disabled. If they’re a gentrifier, they deserve to f***ing die.”
