Disappointed at Dick & Jenny's

Everyone has raved about the food at D&J's on this board lately. I used to be a fan when Richard and Jenny were running the place. So we decided to go back because it had been a while. My gf had the pork tenderloin stuffed with goat cheese and pine nuts that was accompanied by a few sautéed veg which might have come out of a freezer bag – blah. The so called sweet potato cake had no taste and was a blob of mush. The pork was ok but very lack luster for $20 crammed onto a small, old, dirty white plate. I had the duck with chorizo, pumpkin risotto and stewed greens. The duck breast was average and the sausage which was supposed to be chorizo tasted like the spicy Italian sausage from Whole Foods. When I asked about the sausage the waiter said “its duck sausage”. Why would anyone season a homemade duck sausage so much that you cannot tell what it is? The stewed greens were the chopped frozen type that had been reheated with no seasoning. Lastly, the pumpkin risotto was over-cooked with grated cheddar cheese melted on top. The sauces on the meats had good flavor. The meal lacked quality fresh ingredients, good cooking techniques and seasoning.
