Your friend’s comments don’t surprise me. I think any restaurant’s kitchen needs time to work the kinks out. But seeing how this is Pearson’s third or fourth time around the block, I’m hoping it doesn’t take him too long. I enjoyed his place in Long Island City but I never got out to the Jackson Heights location.
I admit that I am one of the folks who was underwhelmed by Blue Smoke. My last visit was last February. Do you think it’s gotten better since then? Maybe they’re due for a re-try! [:)]
I hope you make it to Pearson’s soon. I’d love to hear your impressions. I don’t get south more than once a year so these outposts are quite important to me.
If you don’t see me there in person, know that I’ll be there in spirit! [:D]
