brunch at East Coast Grill 4/19/09

veggielover | Apr 20, 2009 08:22 AM

Five of us who have enjoyed many dinners at the East Coast Grill had brunch there yesterday. It was very disappointing, and I am not sure whether the reason was an off day for the kitchen or declining quality.

First, the kitchen was overwhelmed. We had 11:00 AM reservations and didn't receive any food until after noon. Of course, the restaurant wanted us out the door by 1:00 to accomodate their later reservations.

Next, there was not a single dish that was very good. We tried the fish tacos, "Amilcar's Omelet", the Cuban Reuban, and the breakfast platter. The fish tacos were a scimpy portion of fish, the fish wasn't crisp, and it wasn't tasty. The Reuban had too much bread for the proportion of meat and cheese, and the omelet's flavors just didn't work together. The breakfast platter was the most successful dish, but my son said that it wasn't good enough to overcome the other negative aspects of the meal.

Last, the most of the food came out lukewarm at best, and we needed to send back some of the dishes to be rewarmed.
