Odd night at Blue Plate

John | Jan 9, 200210:50 AM     2

Had dinner at Blue Plate Saturday night. Pretty good appetizers, disappointing entree's. Angie's porkchop was dry, my fish was uninspiring.

But what was really weird was the atmosphere. Lights too low in the "main" dining room made it hard to see your food. Had the feeling that the room was so dirty that they purposely kept the lights low. In the small back room there was one of those tall, upright outdoors kerosene heaters burning away a few inches from the ceiling to keep the room warm. I wonder what the SFFD would have to say about that. And finally, the big group in the back room was smoking pot at their table, much to the surprise of the other restaurant goers.

Just weird. Anyone else experienced similar?
