Brunch at Czehoski - annoying!

spigot | Apr 1, 2007 11:29 AM

Just got back from brunch at Czehoski, and I'm underwhelmed.

The food was good - we had eggs benedict with lox and eggs benedict with brie, served on Thuet croissants with truffled olive oil hollandaise. And a BLT. I'm a big fan of traditional hollandaise so wasn't looking forward to an oo version, but it was fine. And the croissant was a nice variant.

But the service! We ordered lattes which took about five minutes to reach us; okay. But it took a full 40 minutes for our food to arrive, which is just too long at brunch. (The table beside us actually cheered when their food came out, ha ha.). And the service was bad. When we asked for more water, the server filled the glass of the requestor, but not the rest of us. When I asked for pepper, the server peppered my eggs and then left - never asking anyone else if they wanted any. All in all, we were served by three people, for some reason - one seemed personable and competent, one kinda scatter-brained, and one borderline rude (this was the pepper/water guy).

Upshot: brunch is supposed to be relaxing, not annoying. I won't go back to Czehoski.
