Lunch at Street, not so much

Had lunch at Street a couple of days ago. I'm not a Street hater and have enjoyed dinner there on a number of occasinos. I realize that lots of folks on here aren't fans, but I am.

But lunch was, um, blech.

Kaya toast was off. A little overfilled and much sloppier than other times I have had it. The dumpling sampler was meh. Mushroom ravioli were ok, but just ok. The other two dumplings were dry and tasteless.

Chicken schwarma wrap was unremarkable.

The chivito steak sandwich was really, really tasty. But very sloppy. And the off-season tomatoes didn't really add much to it, other than messiness. You could actually taste the prosciutto which, along with the egg, lent the dish a wonderful richness.

A hundred bucks for lunch for three without alcohol is pretty expensive. I think there are much better lunch options in Hollywood.
