PEASANT - good food, RUDE CREW!

just had dinner at Peasant at Spring & Elizabeth. Traveled 2.5 hours from Philly to visit some restaurants. The food was good, not great. More important was the blatant rudeness of the staff. My friend and I arrived early around 5:00. We were informed at that point that they did not open until 6:00. Fine. We killed some time walking around and returned a few minutes early around 5:50. We were informed that we were a bit early and they'd be ready in a few minutes. We figured we'd just wait at the entrance for ten minutes. At that point, a second person told us we had they were not open yet. We acknowledged that and asked if we could just wait up front. After all, it was damn near 20 degrees outside and we had been walking around all day. The man told us we could not stay inside, made us leave and locked the door behind us. You would think they might offer us to have a seat at the bar until they were ready, but no, we had to wait in the cold while the staff stood around inside. Throughout this, there was another person drinking at the bar. Normally I would have left and never returned but considering the fact that we had traveled in particular to try this restaurant we decided to wait it out. I won't return.

This place needs a lesson in hospitality big time!
