Maybe, he's a crackerjack "Communications Director" --- OR --- Maybe, he might do a decent job as an Almost-Chief-of-Staff --- But, for sure he's not fit to give out useful dining & food advice to the people of Southwest Brooklyn
Here's something that the Quagmeister recently Retweeted: ".... These days it can be hard to find a good burger in Brooklyn for less than $15 — before toppings..." (See "John Quaglione @JQuaglione" 3/14/17, Twitter [https://twitter.com/JQuaglione/status/841826535405424643]).
Really, I didn't know that.... In fact, based on my own recent experiences, I believe it NOT TO BE TRUE.
I often have meals at two or three of the places that are reputed to have "the best burgers in Bay Ridge" --- and, except for one where I almost always have a burger, I usually have some other protein dish off the other establishments' "Daily Specials" menu, but I also almost always look at and consider some version of each one's burger choices. And, come to think of it, you can add to the list of those places, a little joint that purports to be a gourmet burger restaurant.
"$15... before toppings..." --- NO, I DON'T THINK SO.
If JQ doesn't know the value of a burger, how can he know the value of a buck ??? And if somebody doesn't know what's a good buy and what isn't, how can they be an effective representative of the people ???
