Exposed brick walls
When describing a new bar or restaurant, there’s a line between capturing the style of the decor and needlessly describing the walls. “Furniture made from reclaimed barnwood? Oh fun! A dining room with exposed brick walls? Oh my God, I need a change of shorts! This restaurant is like no other place in the history of mankind! I LOVE WALLS!!!”
A little [slice/taste/piece] of heaven
Describing foodstuffs as an embodiment of all things holy is not only overdone but also sanctimonious. But you probably saw that from your holier-than-thou ivory tower, didn't you?
One word can not have a dual meaning for delicious food and the thick-bodied, sluggish larva of an insect. Once again: grub, not grub.
It's a cheeseburger... with Gouda... oh, screw it. Maybe it IS transcendent. Just save this for when you really mean it. Don’t ruin transcendent for everyone!
