In perhaps the lamest page from our the way we live now handbook, Feast—a restaurant whose $24 squid ink pappardelle symbolizes what befell New Yorks once rough-and-tumble East Village—has become a flashpoint in the Google Glass battle. As EVGrieve reports, when one woman was asked by Feasts management to remove her Google Glass and refused, things got heated quickly. The woman, Katy Kasmai, wrote an account of her travails on Google+ (it has since been seen 1.7 million times): Then came the cascade of negative reviews of Feast on Google+, which as its been pointed out, is the very first search result for the restaurant.  Many of the reviewers mentioned absolutely nothing about the food and/or submitted reviews from far away, mostly deriding the restaurant for its Google Glass policy.
