Last time I was there, a couple of weeks ago, they had changed the stuffed burger and it is now two patties on the bun and they had eliminated one of the sides that it used to come with. The old burger was much better. The two patties just don't have the same amount of stuffing as the one did.

As a related aside I'm going to make an observation that will be sure to create a stir in Midtown. I think the impediment to the success of some establishments in Midtown is the segregated clientelle. Specifically, some places become quickly dominated by one group (Five Napkin, gay; Straits, black) to the point that they begin to feel somewhat exclusionary. I fear Campagnolo may be following suit (gay). An established gay bar like Blake's or a gay-focused book store like Outwrite are different because their business model is to cater to a specific community. I chose to live in Midtown for its diversity, but, the two times I walked into Straits I was leered at (as in, what's the white dude doing in here?). That is NOT diversity. When my suburban friends joined me the other night at Campagnolo, they noted that we were clearly the only straight customers. Five Napkin was decent, but it was dominated by gay customers, which can feel exclusionary. I also note that, inexplicably, so many Midtown restaurants remain very empty most weeknights. Where are all the Midtowners and why dont they patronize their neighborhood businesses? I'm not sure of remedies to ensure the success of these places. I'm just making some speculative observations here, no judgements.

Here is a speculative observation for you: society can feel exclusionary for a gay person when you are 3% of the general population. I am not sure if I can sympathize with a white straight male the so few times that you feel different that you actually remember them as specific events. It sounds as if you feel entitled to at least be in a mixed crowd - at least when you "choose" diversity anyway. What you consider "diverse", we consider "gay" because its the gayest that a 3% cohort can concentrate an area. 10th & Piedmont is well known to be one of the gayest intersections in America. You "fear" that businesses located at this intersection might become gay? Are you trying to make me laugh? The reason that there is not a Chickfila at this intersection is pretty self-evident. Any business locating at or near this intersection knows what 10th & Piedmont is. The diversification of Midtown is fairly new - this used to be an almost exclusively gay neighborhood. I am sad to see that changing. I really dont care to have people in my neighborhood who feel entitled to blending in a crowd. Few gay residents in Midtown had the option of blending in while growing up - have a little respect for our culture why dont you.
