Gordon Ramsay would have had a field day with this place. They were having a special party on their outside patio and decided to bring some free samples around to the bar patrons. Probably not the best idea!!! I guess the popcorn was just the precursor of what was to come. They started bringing out some severely burnt food. So badly burnt in fact, it was nearly unrecognizable. We were pretty much laughing as they passed it out to customers watching their reactions. We quickly became giddy with excitement to see what was going to be next? Your guess is as good as ours as to what this was....some sort of chicken perhaps??
You can see some soogy potatoes amongst the charred remains. We wondered "I hope the special party wasn't getting burnt food like this". Someone should have had the common sense to look at the food before handing it out as a "Freebie" to the paying customers. I couldn't imagine being a server walking around with these blackened lumps of coal and pretending to be proud of the chef's creation. Perhaps the waitress who wandered around sipping from her giant goblet of wine (bigger than any of the customers) passing out the samples was her way of dealing with the traumatic food offerings. Handing out burnt food samples isn't the best way to get people to order off the menu. Hopefully the new ownership will get things turned around . And a new chef can craft a menu that will fit the cool vibe of this wine bar.
If we see that their menu has changed we may go back and check it out again, since other then the food we felt it had great potential.
