On a lazy Sunday I thought of trying an American Restaurant for a long lunch, a nice juicy USDA steak and a Californian Red. One of the websites directed me to this place and I must say its an overall dissapointment.
First, the menu says this place is Brooklyn Inspired! I didnt expect to see a Brooklyn Legend like Peter Luger's here, but atleast a bit of Brroklyn in the menu. To me there was nothing Brooklyn about this place except the brick walls I guess.
Service is quite pretentious, the Aussie Manager/Server seems to be friendly but he is not.
I have been in the food and beverage industry for nearly 40 years, and I have never seen a restaurant serving pre poached eggs. Most customers were asking why the poached egg was so hard and the Manager said thats how we serve it!
I could see from my table the chefs taking pre poached eggs from a large pan and dropping them into boiling water to heat them up!
Bacon is finished in the deep fryer.
My Rib Eye Steak was tasteless, could be I am used to USDA Beef and this was Australian.
The chocolate Brownie was stone hard and was inedible and after one bite I told the server its too dry and hard, he stared at me and smiled? I still had to pay for it.
Californian Cab was reasonable at $49.
Most people ate breakfast dishes with poached eggs, I am wondering why?
I will not return. I spent $150 and only the wine was good.
