Another Fork in the Road in Milan, NY
Does anyone know if Another Fork in the Road in Milan, NY, is under new ownership? I ask because our meal there last evening was underwhelming at best and it seems like a completely different restaurant nowadays.
Some back story: We swung by AFitR in December of 2010 during a weekend in the area. The brunch we had wowed us, the room was boisterous, the service friendly, and the prices pretty good. Plus they had poutine! It reminded me of restaurants in Brooklyn (in a good way).
Fast forward to September 2012. After calling for several hours to see if they were open (the listed phone number kept going to voicemail), we decided to swing by to just see if they were open. (Well, they were -- the people there just weren't picking up the phone -- that should have been a sign.) We were just one of two sets of diners. The high school girls working there were nice enough, but certainly not knowledgeable, nor professional enough for a restaurant that is charging $20 for a small vegetable risotto (!!!). As for the prices -- two entrees, an appetizer, and two drinks topped $80. Plus, they were out of loads of stuff. ("It's the end of the week for us, so we're out of most things.") The food was fine, but not enough to overlook all of the other stuff. (Like the cobweb that was mere inches above my wife's head -- clearly no one is paying attention to the cleanliness of this place, either.)
Anyways, it's just sad to see a restaurant we liked at one point fall so far in such a relatively short amount of time. Since the website hasn't been updated since 2011, I wonder if there's been a change in ownership, or something else that can explain our poor experience at AFitR.
