For all you Neptune lovers.

I left the place 30 minutes ago and there was no problem getting a table or seat at the counter. The chowder at Yankee lobster is still better.
I don't understandwhy someone would complain (and wish for other's to complain) about a single dish; out of maybe out of 20+ that they offer. If you don't like Neptune's chowder, just don't order it and order the things you do like.
Obviously, there are people who do like it...and apparently enough people order and like it that there's little reason to change it.
That's just common sense.
For the record, I'm not crazy about it myself and don't order it.. Actually, I don't go to Neptune nearly as much as I used to.
hmmm, we're just different that way, prob'ly. I have Give Feedback as a modus operandi, the bad and esp. the good. And Never Assume is my concurrent modus operandi.Chefs almost never get authentic constructive feedback. From waitstaff and customers alike, it's minimal;
"they love it", or "no complaints" or usually just nothing. Heck, this Michael Serpa is a talented chef. I admire him and appreciate his talent. I know he's not proud of his predecessor's chowder ; I don't care for it either, but I bet Michael's chowder would be terrific , and that i would love to eat it. So i'm wishing more people would complain about the existing N.O. chowder so i could get me some great chowder to go with the other great food when i'm there. :-}
