Week in Review, Mar. 6

Restaurant Week was not a good fit for Bull Feeney's (1), the tables were packed at Cinque Terra (2), and the blogosphere was said to be remarkably quite on all things Restaurant Week (3). A reviewer drank Irish "whisky" (4). A dog lived in jail with his food and water dish (5) and a hunter said that game parks provided an experience that closely resembled hunting in the wild (6).

Organic, local food models left little room for a viable, sustainable food alternative (7). Stonyfield Farm Organic Milk was no longer going to be shipped from Washington County to New York state and back to Maine because of declining consumer spending on organic milk (8). One BDN reader said that a disruption in food transport could lead to major food shortages everywhere (9).

A new documentary told how residents of Malaga Island were moved to the Maine School for the Feeble-Minded, a site that is now Pineland Farm (10). The expansion of Poland Springs was said to be good for rural Maine (11), Shapleigh residents banned the harvest of water (12), and fishermen in Port Clyde sued to stop herring trawlers (13), a move the Gloucester newspaper attributed to the "deep-pocketed" Pew Environmental Group (14). At the Fishermen's Forum in Rockport, fishing gear recovered from large whale entanglements was on display (15).

Brava, a Somalian, family-owned restaurant, opens today in the former Uncle Billy's spot on Congress Street. They're serving all-you-can eat family recipes from 11am to close for $10/person.

Bull Feeney's problem is not the weather. Its the fact that———like most "pubs"———serving decent quality food at a fair price has come second to pumping out overpriced beer. The last few meals I've had there have been, at best, unremarkable and, at their worst, inedible. Honestly, I'll be surprised if they manage to stay in business much longer, at least without some serious revisions to their approach. When you can't fill your tables during Restaurant Week (even in a bad economy) you should know that something is wrong.
