Great Jones Cafe is repulsive

Before I forget, I need to report to my fellow hounds about my first (and last) experience at Great Jones Cafe (yeah, I should have known they were jerks for suing Jonez over infringment and forcing them to change their name to "41 Greenwich Avenue!").

I read reviews of the place online (sadly, not here) and ALL of them were superb. So I dragged a few of my friends. We were supposed to be 4 of us, and the 4th was coming in from class so he'd be late. Anyhow, with barely anyone in the place (on a Saturday night), they refused to give us a table for 4. They gave us the table, instead, right to the left of the door--yes, the one where the guy on the end is basically right in the doorway! Awful start.

The woman was very mean about it all; and finally when my friend did come we scooted over to the next table. We ordered the BBQ Chicken, the Blacked Catfish, the Jalapeno Cornbread/Chile, and something else I cannot even remember. Save the chile, it was TERRIBLE! The catfish was awfully-tasting, the bbq chicken was the worst I'd ever had (Heinz BBQ Sauce would have been better), and the coke's given to us were some odd brand (making the diet coke literally undrinkable). It was an awful experience -- 3 people, $80, no alcohol or dessert.

PLEASE don't go here. OK, I'm done ranting!
