Can anyone tell me about the ambience of the former?
Went to the latter the other night and was appalled by the service...the most memorably bad I've experienced in two years. Has anyone else been there yet? Of course, it's new, but this was not about the glitches a new place is in the midst of straightening out...this was pure incompetence combined with an insincere, embarrassingly and even insultingly self-deprecating attempt to apologize for said incompetence in lieu of any attempt to actually remedy it (or at least comp something...). The food wasn't memorably bad, just unmemorable altogether. And the setting is totally uninviting, literally and figuratively cold and bare. I don't get it. And I don't like getting it...any ideas? Am I missing something or being unfair?
