Someone call the team from CSI to check out that mattress.

That sucks about Birdie's. They made amazing vegetarian "chicken" tacos. It's hard to get fake meat done well, but Birdie's did it and I'll miss them!

ugh. this was one of the few restaurants in the neighborhood i liked going to. sucks times a bunch of other sucks.

also, how the hell does eater name drop momofuku as being direct competition to birdies?

Yeah, this is a shame, ak. They seemed like really cool people. I'm not sure if people going to Momofuku would also be the audience for the low-key, folksy ways of Birdies.

David Chang of Momofuku also hates vegetarians. He's seriously hostile toward vegetarians, an attitude I find quite juvenile and assy.
