Please tell me I need to give them another chance(?)
Dinner with the boyfriend was on a slow Wednesday night. Consisted of great wine
by the glass, pleasant dinner salad and apple pork chops. I know, I know...pork chops which the waiter
raved about. Not so great, bland and dry. The baked potatoes are fantastic. Not such a good value and not very good. The service was great. Now onto the mediocre breakfast. Very busy. Service: s l o w. Food: m e d i o c r e. Coffee and bread basket very good. The boyfriend had a "Fruit" Crepe which the waiter said 'filled with fruits and berries'; I had French Toast with bacon. The crepe came with no garnish, pale and dreary looking on the white plate. We looked at each other. He looked inside. Yum! Del Monte fruit-cocktail-looking-fruit with no berries to be found. Oh wait, one boiled looking strawberry. One would think berries would be sprinkled all over. My french toast looked as if the egg had been airbrushed on. Eggs must be very costly and rare at Dusty's. Bacon not done. Additionally, the manager was walking from table to table with two plates in her hand calling out a misplaced order. (embarrassing) Here is my take. This is a great looking place, nice ambience and as usual, the much talked about 'hip' Silverlake crowd. Serves 'French' food which we need in town. I can walk to this restaurant. I WANT to like it. But, it is so mediocre for the money. Should I walk back or forget about them?
