NYC restaurant fires employee who wrote 'Ching Chong' on Asian customer's receipt

Today 08:06 GMT

A restaurateur in New York City has reportedly apologized for — and fired — an employee who wrote “Ching Chong” on an Asian woman’s receipt in place of her name. Ziggy Chau, a friend of the woman’s daughter, first posted a photo of the receipt to Facebook last week, decrying the “racist staff” and urging the Facebook community to boycott the establishment.

COFFEE SHOP REMOVES NOVELTY BATHROOM SIGN OVER ACCUSATIONS OF PROMOTING RAPE CULTURE. “Please boycott this place Cornerstone Cafe NYC until they publicly apologize,” wrote Chau alongside a picture of the receipt, which clearly reads “Ching Chong” under both the “to go” and “customer name” sections. “Better yet, call them directly and let them know they have a racist staff,” Chau added.

Experts warn about private vs. government student loans

Today 08:07 GMT

Student lines of credit offered by private financial institutions, including the country’s big banks, often offer interest rates that are considerably lower than those of government student loans.

Also, private student loans may come with flexible repayment plans, but Canadians don’t have to repay their Canada student loans until they start earning at least $25,000, noted Gittens. Banks are especially keen on law and medicine students, who often graduate with six figures of student debt but also with a good chance of earning six-figure salaries.

The Grill Is Confident, Theatrical, Sharp and New Yorky

Today 08:05 GMT

Taking off from the model the Major Food Group polished at Carbone, the Grill turns that old and increasingly empty formality into theater, or a game that everybody can get in on.

We told ourselves that it was an elegant restaurant, that it was an important restaurant, that the roll call of designers, editors and so on who ate lunch there — a short list that grew shorter as publishers moved downtown, expense accounts were clipped and longtime patrons were called by the great reservationist in the sky — was proof of something other than the tendency of famous and busy people to act from habit and herd instinct.

Scot McCloughan on Kirk Cousins’s contract: ‘We kind of messed up’

Wednesday 20:04 GMT

“We kind of messed up in Washington” is an admission that seems obvious to outside observers, but it’s still interesting to hear McCloughan say it.

“He’s a lot like Kirk from the standpoint that he’s highly intelligent, he’s a great guy, he’ll never embarrass you on the field or off the field, he might make some mistakes,” McCloughan said. [Scot McCloughan says Colin Kaepernick would be atop his list of emergency quarterbacks]. McCloughan also was asked about Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo, which caused him to circle back to Cousins.

Wednesday 19:08 GMT

In 1995, she wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore that proposed an organic garden at the White House and a nationwide school curriculum based on sustainable agriculture.

$68 for a fast-casual dinner in D.C. Expect to see more of this.

Wednesday 12:44 GMT

Sommeliers are not the new rock stars of food and drink – they’re the new DJs

Monday 12:41 GMT

One of several excellent reds he makes in various sites in Spain, this Catalan grenache is gloriously plump and juicy

Obsessive about their subject, the new breed of sommeliers are selectors and tastemakers rather than creators: their talent lies in shaping the mood and lining up seamless matches of food to wine. And, like DJing, the world of wine waiting has become highly competitive, with its own arcane forms of professional recognition.
