Eastern Standard sub-par

Had dinner before the ball game at Eastern Standard on Saturday. We were very disappointed and in fact shocked. The quality has slipped a long way! Ordered cocktails (they were fine), and then we both ordered the frisee salad. Frisee was very sad, and I'm not even sure if the brown cubes in the salad were supposed to be lardons. I should have sent this back --really quite inedible. Then I had the steak-frites. The frites were great, steak was OK (maybe a B-) but the sauce was almost cold and very blah. My DC had the roasted chicken -- nothing special. I won't be back until I see really good reviews again on Chowhound, and who knows if that will ever happen. Did I miss the bulletin -- has the quality been slipping for a while?
