It seems that Mike is surreptitiously serving global fusion food, which is, let's face it, "american". Thanks, Aimee.

ohmygoodness... I enjoy this blog! I'm a bit of a grammar snob and it makes me nuts to see errors like these. My IRL friend's step mom will make comments on Facebook like "Oh hun, you are a "GREAT" person to do such "LOVELY" things." It makes me want to hurl. (yes, caps "and" quotes.)

BTW... found you through Reader's Digest. :)

It's weird - in the 23 years I've lived in the same town as this restaurant (I just ate there a few days ago!), I've never even noticed this flagrant abuse of punctuation. I'm a little bit ashamed of myself. I understand if this means that I deserve to have my grammar-snob card revoked.

I love this one. I live near Mike's "American" restaurant (located in Springfield, VA) and have always wondered about the use of those unnecessary quotes. Funny - although they do have terrific food.

I originally read it as a sentence, as in

Mike's "American"
Joanna's "Swedish."

Then I just felt plain silly!

I've never noticed this, either! Maybe it's the delicious food and good service.
