Off the Radar

When people ask “where should I eat” in connection with a special occasion, it occurs to me that some places have dropped off the Chowhound radar, and I’m wondering why. Canlis, Café Juanita, Crush, Rovers, Chez Shea and a number of other places get frequently mentioned. Much less frequently, places like Campagne pop up, and I’ve not seen either Earth and Ocean or The Georgian mentioned for quite some time now. I’m wondering why these places are so routinely ignored. The Georgian, in particular, has one of the most beautiful rooms in town, seemingly perfect for a special occasion. Is Gavin Stephenson’s food that inferior to the other places most commonly recommended by Chowhounds? I confess to not having eaten at The Georgian, or Earth and Ocean, or Campagne for a long time, so don’t have an opinion. But I’m curious.
