 n.— «In Canada, the decidedly lower-class poutine generally came to the table as fries drenched in gravy, minus any such exotica as cheese curds. Here it’s apparently an in-joke hommage to the Canadian origins of co-owner Doug Washington, who refers to it as a “horrible dish—a gutbomb” but ruefully admits that the version cooked up by co-owners and chefs Mitchell and Steven Rosenthal is “better than what I had in Canada.”» —“The Maddening Crowd” by Meredith Brody SF Weekly (San Francisco, California) May 23, 2007.
