Bad Experiences

taiga May 12, 2012 09:42 AM

I found myself downtown last evening near the Epic, so I thought I would try the Happy Hour at Area 31 that I had heard about. Everything was bad except for two things. It is very nice on the roof, so that is one. Upon entering, the hostess was busy, then occupied, then forgot we were waiting as the phones at her station rang incessantly. She was polite finally -- just unconcerned with doing a good job. We went outside. The waitress was not interested in divulging the Happy Hour information. I confess I was already irritated. She grudgingly said they had ceviche, french FRIES, croquettes FRIED, and calamari FRIED. In the end, we got one drink each and calamari for around $35. The $6 calamari was delicious, the second good thing. If the kitchen knew what the staff was doing at this place, they would fire everybody and start over. I will never return.
