Bad?[edit]

Bold textQUERY: Is this phrase commonly used in a derogatory way?

See Ebert for example http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050721/REVIEWS/50711003/1023

Sounds like he uses it as a metaphor for something bad, a hodge-podge. If this is generally so then the page should mention the overtones?

This Web page gives some different details:
http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/surf-and-turf.html
1. There was earlier usage in non-food products and ads
2. It connotates a lower-end food, at least for a time

The non-food uses are interesting, but I'm not sure how relevant they are to this article on the food.
It's not so much a lower-end food as a pretentious food at mediocre (middle-brow) restaurants. If we can find some more good sources for that besides the Sterns, let's add them. I'm not sure that phrases.org.uk is a particularly good source.... --Macrakis 13:35, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
