Very disappointing lunch at Bings. No hostess/waitress in sight as our group of six arrived. Dining room had one table of eight and one table of three. We waited awhile before the one and only waitress came from the kitchen. Four people had tuna melt with slaw on the side. One had the chicken salad which had sun dried tomatoes and a strange looking reddish sauce. It was just ok in the diners opinion. One diner ordered "hay and straw" which was angel hair pasta with chicken,mushrooms and he only ate half. My sandwich was almost inedible. The menu said it was "roasted seasonal vegetables", which I like very much. It turned out to be all eggplant with one tiny slice of yellow squash. The skin on the completely tastless eggplant was so tough it was difficult to cut with a knife. Both halves of the sandwich was covered with melted mozzarella like a layer of rubber. The only flavor in the whole thing was from a tomato sauce which made the roll soggy.. There was a side of fries and everything was barely luke warm.
The poor waitress needed help and disappeared into the kitchen for long periods of time. Water glasses were never refilled. Even with few diners orders were very slow coming out of the kitchen.
We left and went to the Apple Pie Cafe and the CIA for excellent coffee and dessert.
