Bad Meals at Aureole

Does anybody know what's happened to Aureole? I've just had ANOTHER horrid meal there-food too salty, served cold, greasy, etc. Did the chef die or something?

    Charlie Palmer's other restaurant, Metrazur, at Grand Central Station, is also a huge disappointment. The food is consistently inconsistent, and poorly prepared. Several dishes I've had there were horridly over-salted, I mean really! Frankly, it's just not worth the premium prices. It's such a great location, and such a celebrated chef, and such a disappointment....

      Oh come on now, you expect better at that place? They've been resting on their laurels for some time now. I suppose that Charlie Palmer only cooks when the TV cameras are rolling!
