Not About Food

Have you ever gone back to a restaurant that you thought was so great when you were "younger" and realize now that your more "wiser" its not all that?

last night a group of 11 of us went to holiday dinner at one of the more upscale restaurants in our area.

now, before i moved away when i was 22 i had been to this restaurant numerous times for special occasions. 10 years later, and some kick-ass restaurants in fla and ca, perhaps my taste buds have matured :)

i was really excited to go last night, and we had a GREAT time being all together, and the food was good, but nothing like i remembered and was anticipating, do you know what i mean?

the bar area was still very nice & cozy, but the dining room reminded me of a 80s banquet hall with no atmosphere at all, the waitressing were very nice, but almost intimidated by our table size, the salad- ah this salad i was craving all day for- wasnt quite the salad i "remembered" and the veal dish i have had many time, the same thing.

i wonder if the restaurant maybe went downhill, or if i have been spoiled by such better food?
