Mediocrity at Downtown Restaurant (Berkeley)

Morton the Mousse | Dec 18, 2007 06:53 PM

The Vegetable Fritto arrived cold.
The Duck Confit was dry.
The service was clueless.
The pacing was terrible.
Worst dinner of 2007.

No more bar menu. They offer two "after eight" items which is just odd. An after eight *menu* draws in late night business (see: Fonda). Putting two restricted dishes on the regular menu just makes customers want what they can't have.

I wont be back. You shouldn't bother.
