If you read Eating Our Words long enough, you can guess, pretty easily, which topics are going to spark discussion in the comments every time they come up. Case in point: Mai's, which just reopened, as Katharine Shilcutt reports. Commenter ReginaDupuis, for one, is not a fan:
Mai's is a dud. I've discovered so many better, cheaper Vietnamese places in the same neighborhood since they closed.
If you're into over-hyped and over-rated Vietnamese cooking, Mai's is your place. I prefer the underdogs in this fight.
