    I'm sure that Crooks Corner will not miss you ONE BIT! After all, they won a James Beard award a couple of years ago and their head chef wins awards yearly. Sounds like you need to stick with your box of Ramen noodles and leave dining reviews to others.

    I agree with TJPC about Crooks Corner. I went back after having not gone in years, it was just mediocre at best. Mateo in Durham is a great place for tapas, their local hams are delicious.

    Crooks Corner..ugh...have been there 3 times and would never go back. Longevity in Chapel Hill does not equal good food. Mediocre food and service at best.
    Lantern is excellent and Mateo in Durham is one of my favorites as well.
