I have eaten at HD in Old City many times -- always fantastic. Had dinner last night at HD in U City and it was an entirely different experience. One of my favorites, the twice-fried fish, was a soggy mess. In Old City, the exterior of the fish remains crisp and dry, while the interior is tender. There is no pool of oil left on the plate. The service in UC was incredibly slow. The chairs at the high-top tables are SO uncomfortable. I was wearing a silk skirt, and I kept feeling as though I was going to slip off the chair. All of that, I would endure, happily, if the fish wasn't soggy!
Were they just having an off night?
