That word: I do not think it means what you think it means

Awww, bless this restaurant PR/menu writer’s heart:

“The dining area has a quaint speakeasy vibe that host a small window, allowing guests an opportunity to peek into the kitchen to see Executive Chef [X] work his culinary magistry.”

There are additional small errors (such as the subject-verb disagreement included here), which I can overlook, but oooh, there is no forgiveness on misapplied grandiosity.

Fortunately, I’m not going there to eat his words.

Semi-snarky, semi-sincere, occasionally ranting, always paying attention. Feminist who can work a skirt and crack a joke. Grammar nerd who is also fun at parties. Mid-career writer/editor with 15 years’ experience in newspapers & magazines who now helps developers at a major media corporation communicate with the suits who write the checks. Pro-women, pro-family, pro-choice, pro-workingclass, pro-entrepreneur, pro-farmer. Like every other bourgeois Brooklynite, I choose local/organic/raw food — mostly vegetables — whenever possible/reasonable/affordable but I’m not a smug asshole about it. Hometown: Atlanta. Weird hobby: lindy hop. No pets, no kids, no thanks.
