Confused about Kitchen 1540

I am hoping someone can help me out with this one. A year ago I brought a vegan friend to Kitchen 1540 and the chef did a wonderful job - basically just let her sit back and enjoy his cooking.

Flash forward to this past Sunday. They had the new menu (yes, it has only been a month) and only had about 8 of the tables full but were turning away guests saying that they were "full". When we asked about vegan options, the waitress only told us what could be made vegan on the menu rather than being open to having the chef take care of her like last time. Needless to say she was disappointed since he did so great the last time. She left hungry.

Anyone have any insights as to what was going on? Are they having a waitstaff issue? Kitchen issue with the new menu? Just seemed odd to turn people away - especially on a race day.

Thanks,

Domino
