convivium's mean waiter

pickle | May 5, 2005 01:36 AM

I live around the corner from Convivium. I've been walking by longingly for 2 years, b/c it's so pretty inside. Finally made it in. String bean appetizer was exceptional, as was the bread. Unfortunately, our waiter took my second piece away with my bread plate ten minutes before main course arrived. Why?

Ravioli was v. tasty, lomo too (but dry). Our waiter never knew any of that though, because he never checked on us, not once, during our meal. After he cleared our plates, he took my wine glass, even though there was at least 1/3 of the bottle left on the table. We were...um...confused by it all. I think he was just plain mean. It was beyond bad service; it was downright malevolent.
oh well.
