Julienne...OFF MY LIST

Brunch at Julienne this past Saturday reminded me that they have been going downhill for some time now IMHO. Spinach feta pie...BLEAH. Rubbery crust, warm not hot, AND GET THIS: The waitress comes over to the table and asks if we could have an over easy egg on top instead of a poached egg because Manuel in the kitchen is having difficulty poaching an egg. I kid you not! Someone better go back to culinary school because his "over easy" egg was over cooked and hard. Add to this an unripe fruit garnish and...

I had the chiliquellas and they were just gross. Just thrown together, no taste, no salsa, soggy chips, horrible consistency...

The coffee and service, however, was good as always.

They haven't changed their menu for awhile and they are resting on their laurels.


And for those who ask, "well why didn't you send it back, let them make it right?"...have you heard of the words, quality control? Who let that slop out of the kitchen in the first place?

This is my rant.
