Grand Sichuan Saint Mark's - still good?

hungrycomposer | Jan 29, 2011 10:29 PM

I had dinner at Grand Sichuan Saint Marks the other night. The chicken and loofah soup was meager and weak. The cold spinach and ginger appetizer was delicious and a generous serving. The home-style pork was pretty good. But service was off - it took a long time to get our food in spite of the fact that it wasn't crowded. After the meal my boyfriend and I both got some nasty allergic-type reactions - maybe to MSG? I was wondering if others had experienced the same problems, or if it was just an off night. Maybe their regular chef is visiting his family for new years? I don't normally have a problem with MSG, certainly never at GS before. Most of the food was OK, but not at their usual level.
