Borough Food and Drink

The price is not right at Borough Food and Drink. Appetizers run about $15 and entrees between $25-30. They've eliminated their sandwhich portion of the menu which makes it nearly impossible to put together a meal for less than these prices. So out of curiousity, this morning I decided to look up the menus of other restaurants in the neighborhood. Did you know that for the same prices as Borough you can eat at Craft, Craftbar, Blue Water Grill, Hearth, Degustation, Bar Struchzinni, along with nearly a dozen other restaurants with better food and better service. I went to Borough for the second time last night, and for the second time they seated me over 30 minutes later than my reservation time(particularly frustrating given the fact that I was easily able to make an 8:30 reservation on opentable just two hours earlier). My $25 "Lobster Roll" bordered on a joke with a miniscule piece of dried out, over cooked lobster, chopped up and scattered on a hot dog bun you could buy in a supermarket. Appetizers came out quickly, but main courses didn't come out until about 45 minutes after that. Our waiter was no where to be found half the time. As I understand from my previous visit, and other people's account, this all seems to be business as usual at Borough.

I don't mind mediocre food or mediocre service so long as its priced accordingly. This is not the case at Borough.
