A rare GCM visit today...Bombo didn't have a huge line, so I went for it. Mark Peel was manning the stoves. Had seafood stew, served in a cardboard bowl. Took about 10 minutes to make, maybe longer. Staff was very nice.
Portion is very small...two shrimp, two mussels, two clams, a small piece of fish. Some tiny diced potatoes and other legumes. Flavor was excellent, if a bit mild. Finished everything (good!), but was still hungry. Finding a seat to eat is a chore, and not what I'd call a pleasant dining experience. At least before it was dirt cheap and the atmosphere matched the prices.
As an aside on GCM, they don't validate parking anymore. It's $2 for 90 minutes. And, like many gentrified neighborhoods, the clientele now is completely different. A little sad, IMHO. Roast-to-go and Ana Maria were virtually customer free...yet there was a huge line at Tumbras. And Eggslut is just plain silly...it's like watching the lemmings jump off a cliff!
