Unfortunate Minibar Experience

jpschust | Oct 27, 2006 02:08 PM

Well, last night we went to minibar for the first time. The food was ok in some parts, good in a few parts and meh in a couple of other parts. The service is lacking to say the least, the wine pairings didn't match the meal particularly well, and what's with them not using clean silverware between courses? A chef wouldn't taste an appetizer with the same spoon he would use to taste a soup, so why does he ask the paying customer to do the same?

I sent a fairly cordial e-mail to Chef Andres only to get a pretty rude response back.

I fail to see why this place gets such high ratings.
