I’m sorry, Ruby Tuesday, you lose.

First of all, I would like people to stop adding -ista to the end of things. It’s over. No more Fashionistas, Recessionistas, Budgetistas, Kitchenistas, iPad-istas, and the like. It officially crossed the line from clever to irritating sometime last year.

Secondly, Ruby Tuesday is not a foodie destination. Perhaps it’s changed since the last time I went there (a good 10 years ago), but any place with “890 locations and counting” isn’t likely to ever draw the foodie crowd. I’d be a little less snobbish on this point if I’d seen this in Every Day with Rachel Ray rather than Elle. But, if you place your ad in a snobby magazine, that’s what you get.
