What's changed: me or La Traviata?
I returned to La Traviata last night after, I think, 6 years. And it wasn't nearly as good as I remember...what's changed: me or La Traviata? Or what I'm hoping the answer is, fluke.
We got a salad with stewed figs and goat cheese. The figs were way too sweet and the lettuce was limp and not that fresh. Now he noticed that we didn't care for it and brought us extra wine to say sorry which was really gracious.
Then we had the tortellini in white sauce that precedes an entree. It was fabulous but a smaller portion than I recall.
And then the entrees. I had bass that was fine, a B-. The breading was a little off. Kmanlove had the sweetbreads which were delicious.
Maybe we'll return for just a pasta dish. But all in all, I doubt it. Unless the verdict here is fluke.
So what's changed? Me or La Traviata?

More like 30 or 35 years! I remember mentioning to my dining companions that my daughter was playing cho-cho san's child in the SF Opera, and the next thing I knew they had "un bel di" on their sound system. We thought that was pretty classy. And I recall the food was really good then too.
I havent been in a while either, but I'd say if you got one tortellini that was fabulous (as for smaller portions, that isn't unusual in this day and age) and one entree that was fine and one that was delicious, I'd say you were doing very well. It never was great, but it was enjoyable.
