SF Restaurant decline accelerates?

  • d

This week the Bay Guardian says, "..from Sausalito to SOMA, restaurant business is down 15% to 40%".
Contrary to ther claims of the restaurant shills on this board ("everybody is at the lake",etc.)I notice mostly 1/2 full dining rooms at Boulevard, Gary Danko,Chaya Brasserie, etc. The bad buzz has even caught the hi-profile dot com haven Bacar.While the service is as slow and unprofessional as ever-they are a little less rude.

    1. Hey, I resent the 'shill' comment. Pollyanna, maybe - shill, not!
