SF Restaurant decline accelerates?

Duke Dee Jul 6, 2001 02:25 PM

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.

    Walked into Hawthorne Lane last Saturday night at 730pm (party of four) and were seated with no wait. The place was busy but not packed. Try that trick a year ago. I concur.

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