went there last night with the moms.

had a craving for pho so I got that (yeah, yeah viet dish) and it was very good. not much meat in it and it was in big slices so it was kind of hard to eat with chopsticks.

got the tom kha (cocunut) soup for appetizer (thai dish?) and it was the best thing we had. also got a ginger salad on the side (japanese?) and was not impressed by it - no flavor and the plate they served it on was more about decoration and so eating it without the lettuce sliding off the edges was a bit annoying.

mom had the basil beef, which was pretty good - reminded me more of a chinese pepper steak dish but a little thicker with more spice.

loved the atmosphere.

overall 6/10 but for an asian restaurant probably a 7.5/10

She says "silence is complicity", but also says "no one can tell you where, when, and how to tell your story."

If she wants Van the beast to be held accountable, why doesn't she herself go to the authorities? Someone has to light the spark, and then others will hopefully follow suit and complain to the authorities as well. Why doesn't she do it herself?

We hear so many times "rapists and sexual abusers get away with their crimes", but there are millions of cases where the victims don't come forward for fear of losing a job or respect in society. While I am not minimizing their legitimate fears, unless a victim reports the abuse, the abuser will definitely get away with their crime, and keep doing it to others.

It is a shitty situation overall... no easy solutions I guess.

^^ she specifically directs "silence is complicity" towards those that have witnessed abuse, not those that have their own story to tell (to whom she says "please share your story when and if you are ready" and that coming forward is "your choice alone")

Will these accusations cost this man his business? Maybe he would have to go to jail before people stop devouring his delicious food.

^I'm using the word as a legal term of art in this case.

Opinion on publicly disclosed fact is protected speech right up front. Opinion on undisclosed fact is potentially actionable if not true. Truth is always protected. If a service industry working being isn't susceptible to a crappy SLAPP suit, I don't know who is. NC doesn't have an anti-SLAPP law and it really needs one.

If I can give up the soup dumplings and Peking duck at Bhavana, you can give up Grove.

I was always a fan of Bida Mandas Pad Thai, it's a little different from the norm.

Oh well, fuck that guy and his pad thai, right in the eye

^ reading that, it seems like he is not the only one who should be crucified.

many of the managers are culpable as well, either for not taking action or for being abusers themselves, and i am sure the other two co-owners also knew what was going on but swept it under the rug until now.

BTW, this confuses me:

Quote :
"Bivins said Hester first crossed the line with her during a trip to New Orleans.

"On the first occasion I was acutely aware he had crossed a line, he demanded I show him my breasts while attending Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. It was a command, like any other he’d give behind the bar. And he was my boss, and my friend - or so I thought," Bivins said, noting that she complied with his request."


why did she comply?

Motherfucker I know you have you had this explained to you before. Do not come on here at 40-whatever years old asking why someone who felt pressured to do something complied.

When you have a source of income, and your boss is responsible for maintaining that source of income....you're kinda gonna want to do what he/she says if you want to maintain that source of income.

And like the article said, the place had a cult-like atmosphere. One might want to do what one can to stay on-board.
