24 Diner, bad brunch experience

jakethecat | Jul 19, 2004 10:41 AM

I was eagerly anticipating the opening of 24 Diner on 8th and 17th (I think). I had hoped it would give me an alternative to Cafeteria on 7th (which I love!). I went with a friend for brunch on Sunday and it was just not a good experience.

We ordered mac and cheese as an appetizer, it was decent but not great. Then our entrees came out. My friend's entree (one of the breakfast skillets) came out with the wrong ingredients on it. She had to send it back. Even if it had been right, it looked kinda like something from Denny's. My omelette was somehow incredibly salty...a definite kitchen error. I had to send it back as well. We ended up just paying for our drinks and the Mac n Cheese and left to go get brunch elsewhere.

To the restaurant's credit, the servers were wonderful and handled this situation with aplomb. I just hope the kitchen can work through its problems. Chelsea needs more good restaurants!
