Craig Laban A James Beard Finalist Most Likely Because Of Amazing Lines Like This One

Never one to pull punches, Craig Laban once again fails to disappoint with his latest review, this one about Del Frisco’s Steakhouse.
I'm guessing that all the crisply pressed suits guzzling pineapple "VIP" cocktails in the lounge were enjoying more than just the food. And I'm not even talking about the Borgata-style waitresses in teeny skirts and fishnet stockings. Or the posse of Sixers settling into their booth behind us. It was some of the female guests who were really turning heads, with so many surgically enhanced, body-glittered bosoms on display, the only thing missing was a brass pole.
Oh snap.

Well, that probably makes at least one of Rick Nichols' steakhouse blind items last month a little easier…

Anyway, congratulations to Mr. Laban on the nomination, which was actually for this article. Well deserved.

Del Frisco's - At these prices this showy steak house should be nearly perfect. But with mediocre cooking and oily service, it's far from it. [ Philadelphia Inquirer ]
