Spazzia/Ruby Fu's

Tom Goldstone | | Feb 10, 1999 04:09 PM

In the past two weeks I've been to 2 brand new Upper
West Side restaurants and had VERY different

SPAZZIA -- 77th and Columbus -- owned and run by the
same people who brought you spartina...wonderful
mediterranean food...great service...i went on their
4th night of opening and it was as if they had been
there for 10 years...very smooth...and did i mention
the thin crust pizzas -- absolutely scrumptious...very
good fresh pasta...tasty roasted chicken...a very nice

RUBY FU'S -- 77th and Broadway -- don't know who is
involved with this restaurant, but whoever it is, they
don't have their act together...had a reservation and
still had to wait 45 minutes for a table, while they
took what seemed to be people off the street before
us...when they finally DID show us to a table, we
trudged upstairs only to find that the table that we
were to be seated at did NOT exist...a little more
waiting brought us to a HUGE round table for 3
people...not very cozy...service was VERY
slow...ordered pan fried noodles with chicken and arrived with "stuff" on top, but only
about 2 pieces each of chicken and broccoli...sent it
back...sushi was good...but that didn't make up for the
shortcomings...and they never DID apologize...unless
they shape up, stay away!!!!!
