The Nines behind the eight-ball
The Nines -- the new hotel that Sage Hospitality opened in Portland, Oregon this fall -- is taking a beating on shamelessrestaurants.com for the general suckiness of its restaurant, which already lost its executive chef. To see the bile spewing, check out the comments on the Urban Farmer "That was fast" post. Looks like Duy Pham, who once was looking at a job at the Nines, made a much better deal when he moved to Pueblo instead.
Fortunately, Sage enjoys a much better reputation in Denver, where the Corner Office continues to be one hot hotel restaurant.
