    1. Also just the food or service too?

      1. Ez. Red medicine. The price and snootiness just another FU on top of mushy gross food. Apologies and no offense to its fans. Runner up, pinks

          +1 on Red Medicine. Horrible atmosphere and service. The room is extremely loud and gets worse as the night goes on. God help you if you're at one of the 2 tops under the window looking into the kitchen. You'll sweat off the same amount of weight as you consume. The food doesn't make up for it and I hate seeing shared plates for tasting menus. The only redeeming thing about the place is the birch/redwood/whatever-tree ice dessert.

                I definitely had the vaunted maple ice thing. Some coconut puff thing too. I think they cook mushy food specially designed for toothless people.

          1. Is Jerry's Deli a considered a chain?
