I am lucky to be alive today and not deathly ill after attending a birthday party last night at the unbelievably dirty Cafe Classico.
What a terrible place to hold a celebration. Instead of being happy to have 25 new customers ordering up a storm on a night when only 4 other patrons showed up, the staff completely bungled everything about our event and didn't care at all.
The place was dark and uninviting, and the bathroom was the worst I've seen above 38th Street. The appetizers took more than 45 minutes to arrive. One guest ordered a ceasar salad and got some wilted lettuce, dressing on the side, and about 3 croutons. When she complained that this was not a nice ceasar salad, the waiter put up a fight until he begrudgingly took it away.
The burgers were ok, but the steamed vegetables were hard and seemed to have been "steamed" in lukewarm dirt water. All this and a diet coke for $30.
The waiters ignored us throughout the night and had to be asked over and over for things like a slice of birthday cake or a glass of water. Everyone spent the night dreaming of a place like Kosher Delight, which seems like Solo when compared to Cafe Crappico.
