TO SAY THAT BOTH THE MEAL AND ITS MAKER HAVE CHALLENGED MY PRECONCEPTIONS ABOUT FINE COOKING IS A GROSS UNDERSTATEMENT. THEY HAVE ROCKED ME TO MY CORE: When your new favorite brunch place has a rat problem, can you still go to the restaurant's other locations?

    What if they named the rats Remy? Would that be any better?

  2. Read the link, sounds like a unique problem with that location. yes, I would eat at the others. Would not eat at this one until it passes another health inspection.

    I've been seeing reports of rats on 12th and 13th between Lombard and Walnut for nearly 2 weeks on local social media (Washington West Civic Association on fb, Philly Mag's blog, etc). It's a shame that Green Eggs is going to bare the brunt of the press about a problem that the city really needs to address. There's a bunch of construction going on and there have apparently been rats everywhere. I live and work along Locust Street and my walk to work is typically 8 blocks (including crossing 12th and 13th). I haven't walked to work in a week. Just not chancing it. I have a lot of sympathy for Green Eggs. It really isn't their fault.

    Watching the story unfold went like:

    Philly: Yo, there are rats there!
    Green Eggs: Not our fault, it's a busted sewer line!
    Philly: Why are there pizza boxes and food left out overnight on your tables? The rats are all over it. You don't even serve pizza.
    Green Eggs: Oops.

    I know what it's like to live in a neighborhood with a rat problem, so I feel for them a bit, but they really should know better than to leave food out overnight. That's just asking for trouble.

  5. Why wouldn't you go to that location? Seems to me that it would be the cleanest restaurant in the city, after all the publicity.

  6. Noooooo!! I'm a brunch fanatic in Philly and between all of the Green Eggs, I'm probably at 30 visits. That's dissapointing. Hawthorne's, Honey's Sit and Eat and Cafe Lit are better anyway.
