Nightlife columnist Tom Horgen takes a brief break from pounding shots of rail tequila to pen a passionate apologia for the Lyndale Tap House, calling out the “just bloggers” who went after it. His theory: a few weeks post-opening is too early for snarky remarks. How about this as a proposal, Tom Horgen: As food critics, we collectively suspend judgment on any place not yet charging people money for food. After that, if you overcook your chicken to the consistency of leather, it’s fair game for commentary. You can’t demand a place to be perfect when it opens — but you can expect a focused concept and competent execution of basic tasks. Moreover, a lot of restaurants open smoothly to general acclaim — if Bar La Grassa and Anchor Fish and Chips (and probably a dozen other new restaurants in 2009) can stand an early assessment, so can a well-funded venture like the Lyndale.
