Had a much less than stellar meal at Independent
last night, soup to nuts, completely uninspired...
and this from one of our favorite kitchens.
The front of the house has always been problematic
with a 'too hip for you' new irish mentality that we dont particularly care for, though a few of the servers are genuinely nice, but its the food that has been consistently great.
After some ok clams & pasta and a less than average lobster bisque, asked if mark was in that night.
Turns out he's been gone more than a month now (cooking @ rustic kitchen) I hear... but between the rather loud scene and average food we wont be back for a while.
Please post contradictions, am hoping it was an off night...?
