13 Worst Restaurant Names in NYC
Everyone agrees that names are getting harder and harder to come by, as the restaurant population increases and the pool of viable names dries up. We've seen some doozies in the last few years, and one of the worst trends has been generic restaurant names, whereby new places are called Kitchen, Delicatessen, Cafeteria, Village, and Eatery.
So, please, restaurant namers, put your thinking caps back on and come up with some monikers we can remember, and ones that make us proud to stride into your establishment rather than make us cringe. As a guide, please consult this list of horrible restaurant names that have been inflicted upon the dining public, listed in alphabetical order.
1. Big Booty Bread Company (261 West 23rd Street) -- No fecal matter in my baked goods, thank you!
2. Casa Mono (125 East 17th Street) -- Remember when you were in high school, got a little rambunctious with your date in the back seat of Dad's car, and developed a sore throat later on that wouldn't heal?
3. Chic & Green (109-23 72nd Road, Forest Hills, Queens) -- The self-congratulatory name is more likely to suggest a debutante on the verge of puking than a stylish and eco-friendly boite. That SUV parked in the driveway isn't helping, either.
