SPQR since Daniel's departure - Not up to snuff?

Carrie 218 | Mar 6, 2008 09:47 AM

I ate at SPQR three or four times while Daniel was at the helm. I have eaten at SPQR three times since Daniel left.

I have to say, they are quickly on a down-hill slide... Because of multiple accolades, the place is swamped but as I always dine solo, I have been able to find a seat at the bar anytime I go. That said, my most recent visit included brussel sprouts that were not only over-fried, but horrifically over-salted. My salads were over-dressed. And the sweetbreads were soggy as though they were not served immediately . I didn't get bread served until the third of my three-course tasting menu. The pasta was over-cooked and hardly al dente.

I am sooooooo sad....

Can't wait to figure out where chef Daniel will land next and follow his career. I am reticent on returning to SPQR despite my adulations.
