McKinney & Doyle in Pawling -- Is it slipping?

bluefrog | Jan 1, 2007 04:46 PM

M&D has been one of our favorite places since we discovered it about three years ago, not least because it is about 20 minutes from our home. We usually go 2-3 times a year.

Last night, however, our experience was nothing less than disastrous. My wife's chicken arrived in a sauce that was thick and pasty -- obviously, the kitchen used a thickener rather than making a reduction. It was, in addition, so salty, that she sent it back. My salmon was pedestrian at best, and salty to boot. The fritters were soft, not crispy. Only the salad was appealing. We woke up this morning with queasy stomachs.

With a short menu (only 3 items) and only two sittings, I see no reason for this level of incompetence. Before making a judgment, however, I would appreciate knowing if anyone else has had a similar experience in the past 3 months. Simply put, is McKinney and Doyle slipping?
