Chez Panisse Cafe disappointment

Oakland Barb | Nov 29, 200306:37 PM

I felt very fortunate picking up a last minute 7:15 reservation at the Cafe last night, as we hadn't been in some time. Admittedly, I was after the crab and the appetizer was wonderful. But then came my crostada. Granted it isn't cutting edge- and I've ordered them before, but this was the most insipid, saltless version I've ever had. I complained to the waiter who appeared aghast that anyone would complain about the food at Chez Panisse (but did remove it from the check). It's not the first time this kind of thing has happened. We stop going for a while, give it another chance, eat something completely devoid of flavor etc etc etc. Am I missing something or do others find the same to be true. The emperor occasionally forgets a his clothing?
