Tartine service deteriorating?

Sean Mallory | Nov 26, 2005 01:12 PM

Ever since Bar Tartine opened, it seems that service at the original Tartine has gotten worse. At 10 am this morning, I saw the longest line I've ever seen, but tables were sitting empty and the coffee barista had no orders going. I think the bottleneck was the slow cashier, who (like everyone else working there) appeared to be new. Did Tartine move all their experienced staff to Bar Tartine? Has there been other evidence of deterioration at the original Tartine since Bar Tartine opened?
