Recent London Grill experience

Scott Lewis | May 6, 2008 07:02 PM

We're new to Philly and my wife and I stumbled into London Grill on a recent Sunday for brunch. I have to wonder what all the positive buzz I've heard about this place is all about. The service was just this side of abysmal and the food was sub par. Even if the food was decent their service was enough to prevent me from going back and even if the service was great the food wasn't enough to come back for. Without much effort I can do the same in my kitchen. On another note, we were in Bishop's Collar this past weekend. They were twice as busy as LG had been the week before and the service was spot on and the food was notably better. Not making any adjustments for bar food vs. the more structured style of LG. Head to head, BC was a better meal and I'll be back.

And like many, we were back at Matyson this week for their Cinco de Mayo tasting meal and as usual, they knocked it outta the park. Just about the best service I've had in my 9 months in the area. A visit to Vetri is on the calendar for June....
