Hit it last night.
Had 5 course tasting menu for 2.
Short story was, eh. Included rice in two of the courses, tuna tartar was not that fresh, banana cream pie for dessert was not bananaey enough, nothing really memorable. They even threw in an amuse so it was really 6 dishes...
Pretty sure the sou chef was at the helm. He came over and did the "Any likes and dislikes thing." I basically just said go for it.
Place has a great vibe, prices are reasonable. Think I would have been better off sticking with the regular menu. Places should not do a tasting menu if they can't really deliver, which is what this felt like. Hopefully it would be better with the chef in the house.
With Franklin Cafe so near by not sure I would give it another whirl. Maybe apps at the bar.
what a bummer. i SO hope they will get back to their original succesful ways, as i thought they has done.
Yeah, a lot places get off track after a few years. I've had quite a few horrible meals there, but I've also had some very good ones when the was at the helm. Actually, if I remember correctly thats' why I haven't been in so long.
I hope they do get it together.
I had a horribly amateurish meal there this summer. It would have been laughable had it been free!
