In this interview, Liberty Kitchen co-owner Lee Ellis explains why the restaurant has a sign banning Chronicle critic Alison Cook from the premises.
I'll cut to the chase on this. Alison Cook used the BRC as a personal vendetta against Lance, and we've spoken about this in the press before .... I'm a businessman, and I didn't think it was fair to the 49 people that worked at the BRC for her to attack it [like she did]. If you ever read the review you would see the maliciousness of it. She attacked us for serving her pimento cheese on a white plate. It was just over the top.[CultureMap Austin]
