Anthem last Friday

Thanks to those who advised to go with apps rather than entrees. Overall the experience was pretty mediocre. It took 45 minutes to order our first round apps and a drink and the room was only 1/2 full. The calamari was okay, very oily, but they were tossed with pepperoncini which was a nice surprise. The hummus was abundant and good, different than I've tasted before. There was much more pepper and less tahini than I'm accustomed. The duck fall rolls were cold in the middle. I bet they're yummy warm. The fondue was okay, nothing spectacular. There was actually a pretty shallow amount in the pot and it was burning when it reached the table. These few small plates and a few cocktails took us about 2 hours to get through... I usually don't let service get me down but this was ridiculous given how quiet it was in there.
