Riblet: one of the rib ends in the strip of breast of lamb or veal.

I found it mildly amusing that the NYT had to define “riblet” for its audience in the third paragraph of its Applebee’s story today.

Kim Severson doesn’t really seem to hold back in this one. Like…”Among the dozen dishes on her table that day was the Georgia praline peach streusel pancake, a dish so sweet it made a Butterfinger bar seem like a refreshing palate cleanser.”

Also? Why do you suppose the CEO is called the Velvet Hammer? Because she really likes Tia Maria?
