it’s official: joe beef is bullshit

“Dave McMillan: On Hipsters Outside His Restaurant”
http://cultmontreal.com/2012/09/dave-mcmillan-joe-beef-hipsters/

i’ve been saying it for quite some time.  joe beef and their ilk are leading a new breed of asshole, the food hipster.  they aren’t actually interested in good food, just interested in being a food hipster.  seriously, go to one of these places.  it’s overpriced bullshit and all you find is assholes dressed like they’re poor.  of course we’re talking about $50 meals eaten by people dressed like they’re poor.  it’s all about the idea of being into food as opposed to actually being into food.  concept over quality.

i mean they admit it themselves.  fastforward to 27:30 from the video below:

clams on a radio. clams. served on a physical radio. who the fuck cares. how much you think they charge for that? fuck this shit. FUCK IT.

so yeah, it’s official, joe beef is bullshit.

thanks to sean lahey for sharing the cultmontreal article on fb.

    OK so I haven’t eaten here yet but I disagree with your interpretation of the video. They don’t “admit it themselves”, they argue that they had to use a “clever hook” to get people to come to the restaurant to try the food which is actually [supposed to be, but now I’m less tempted to find out] good.

    i love that there’s a bottle of sriracha at the table during the final shots of Joe Beef.
