little owl brunch - disappointing

jon | | Jul 6, 2009 11:26 AM

ate brunch at little owl yesterday and have to say it was very disappointing. no wait (probably because of the july 4th weekend) and we had a nice table. milk in saucer on the table had black bits floating around in it. meals were not good: wife's big eye tuna with avocado puree in bibb lettuce cups was a joke. 4 teeny slivers of raw big eye tuna for $12. this was not a meal, more an appetizer. my cured salmon with eggs was ok, except for the 3 giant bones I found while eating. it's not every day you find bones in your eggs. the side of home fries with asparagus (sides are a la carte and completely necessary given the diminutive portions) was borderline inedible due to ridiculous amount of salt.

now some may say that this was because it was a holiday weekend. well you know what, the restaurant was open, serving, and charging full fare. if you're not up for serving good food, close up shop for the weekend.
