Anyone been to the new Home?

scurvy Jul 7, 2008 11:20 AM

Apparently the new Home at Fletcher/Riverside in Silverlake is open for business. I went to the other one shortly after they opened, and while I recall that the food was decent enough, the service/attitude has kept me away for the several years since.

I've heard that they ironed out those issues, and the new space is looking pretty cute and (dare i say) homey. I am already slightly annoyed at the compulsory valet parking in their lot, but I want to like it since it is so darn convenient.

Who has an opinion?

    The food at the branch on Hillhurst is ultra bland and the menu is completely lacking in imagination. Why would the new location be any different?

      I agree, but the place is packed on the weekends. It is amazing, last time i was there had a brown romaine chicken caesar salad, I did not know romaine came in a brown variety, oh wait, it had gone bad! That was 5 years ago, why go back is right.

      Convenient and cute, indeed. And we only live a few blocks away so believe me we WANT SO MUCH to like it. But after breakfast there on Saturday it's unlikely we'll be back except in a pinch -- this is unimaginative food, served clumsily. To be fair, like all greasy spoons the bussers did a great job -- but the servers were non-existent. How do you pass an empty coffee cup, at breakfast, on the weekend, not once, not twice, but three times?

      Our conclusion -- this place is Perkins, without the service.

      At this price and for this type of food, stick with the Astro, unless you want booze.
