I won't eat salmon as a main course. It's jv. And by jv, I mean second rate, uninteresting, amateurish. For some reason about eight or ten years ago, a lot of people got turned on to salmon. And perhaps the massification, popularization, and suburbanization of the fish has cheapened its appeal for me. If it's on the menu at Ruby Tuesday or Applebee's, I'm not ordering it up at any of my DC haunts. Same goes for chicken. I hate chicken. What do these two things have in common? Ubiquity and flavorlessness...they've gone the way of Merlot...and velour sweat suits.
