Balducci's-only the name's the same

fluffy | Dec 17, 200506:30 PM

After much anticipation, I stopped by the "new" Balducci's late Saturday afternnon. The old building is restored beautifully but the food leaves a lot to be fact, their food made me appreciate why the lines are so long at Whole Foods.
Balducci's prepared foods looked like they sat there all day and most likely they did otherwise they would not have looked so "tired". I was extremely disappointed by the quality and their limited selections and will not return.There is no reason even to try again.
My purchase amounted to strawberries which could be bought anywhere......who needs Balducci's! My memories serve me better than this sliver of it's former self.
