Zaytoons- new chef? bad night? for the fans only

Larry Brooks Oct 17, 2007 04:29 PM

I know Zaytons has it's share of both fans and those who don't like them.
Thisis for those who like them and consider their food top notch, like me.

My question: anyone notice a downhill?

EVERYTHING in my to go was odd, not the norm and almost well, bad including:

Appetizer platter - baba, tabouli, foul, cucumber yougurt, and stuffed grape leaves
Shawarma sandwich

everything was off....everything.

        maybe that's the problem. maybe they've sent all their good cooks to the one on vanderbilt because it's new.

        not a huge zaytoons fan, but since i live about two feet away from the one on smith i find it useful. would be sad if it went permanently downhill.

      I think you had an off night--we eat there all the time and it's usually very good. We've experienced some off nights in the past, too though. Bedouin Tent on Atlantic is delicious also.
