Meh holiday dining experiences...
Had a couple of disappointing experiences this week -
Hit Wicket - went to watch the Pats' game - place was mostly empty - planned on ordering apps and dinner - bartender (who I think is the owner) takes my drink order, forgets it, comes over to the table, I order the doubles. Doubles never come, apparently he never put in the order but we never really get an explanation, the bartender/owner ignores us and basically we just got blown off, while folks who came in later had nice, hot food delivered as we were asking for our check for our drinks. So that was nice. I don't really care that you forgot and I am not asking someone to supplicate himself because of the error, but at least man-up and apologize. Whatevs - meh.
Sarma last night - the passed plates from the kitchen were not coming out - I think they were really in the weeds. Not really feeling the warmth at the bar - I dunno. We talked up about ordering the fried chicken (which is great) but we never saw any come out while we were seated there. "Better luck next time with the chicken" from the bartender...or maybe not. Meh again.
Looking forward to a Happy New Year in 2014!
