Dear Gentle Mike, I agree. I will give them several more chances, in fact. But I believe their 'hard' opening was the 16th. Thank you for your comments, Rita

Dear Gentle Deivery, I will certainly try the wrap and plan to order the fries while at the restaurant. Accolades like yours are worth another attempt! Rita

I must admit, gentle readers, that I only experienced Whata Weiner as a delivered meal. Miss Rita is getting far too fragile to traverse the icy streets of our fair city, at night. Therefore, I decided to experience the flavor... Continue reading

Dear Gentle Hakmayap, McMichael's calls itself a pub and grill. Pubs have pub food. Grills grill. It is that simple. They have a full food menu but no beer or wine menu. That makes it an "eatery" at the very least. The steak was on the menu and so we ordered it. Thank you for your response. Rita

Dear Mr. Flay, When reviewing, I do a taste-test of each portion of food. I take a small portion and eat it. You of all people should know that; I've seen you do it on television many times. I'm so honored that you responded to my small critique! I'm also glad you found time to visit McMichael's 4 times! And I was not comparing apples to oranges when I compared them to Max's. I said, "it will rival Max's for elegance and refined but friendly dining in this lovely little town", giving kudos to Max's & Gloucester City while giving hope for the future of McMichael's. Thank you for your response and good luck with your throw-downs.

Dear Gentle Bob, That is correct. When she is cooking she is most certainly hot. I hope the poor girl doesn't swoon from the heat. R.

Dear Gentle Doogy, As Popeye would say, "I am what I am and that's all that I am." I offer critique as well as praise. And I tell the truth about it. R.

Dear Gentle Alice, I have tried the bread pudding and found it delightful. I was sorry I didn't order it to go with the meal. I understand the owners make it themselves, which is also wonderful. Thank you for reading! R

Dear Gentle TJ, Each person's palate is different, of course. I have not partaken of the Saturday night entertainment but may do so in the future. Thank you for reading and the compliment. By the by, I now have a Facebook page! R

Although I did not intend to review this particular eat in--take out establishment I felt as though I should, for several reasons. First, it is a local business and I am fond of the idea of shopping (and dining) locally.... Continue reading

Dear Gentle Guadalupana, Dear dear, you are correct. I am very sorry I misspelled "piqued"! I feel as though I may swoon with my own disappointment. Thank you for your kindness. I apologize for my error. R.

Dear Gentle Anonymous, Sounds lovely. I am limiting my reviews to Mt Ephraim, Audubon, Bellmawr, Westville and Brooklawn at this time. When I have finished with that area I intend to concentrate on other areas. Your descriptions have peaked my interest and I shall don my gloves and hat and head there in the very near future. Thank you for the suggestion! R.

Dear Gentle Pill, I am sorry you don't like "Mexicin" food. Perhaps it is because you have difficulty reading the menu. R.
