Chutzpah 5, Customer 2.
Why not charge serious money for goood food on Commercial Road? Well, only if you can deliver: dot, dot dot…
The high points were the starters and the grappa. In between was dire : staff whose knowledge was limited to a very short script and devoid of charm, steak* ordered blue turning up medium, two bottles of red both of which needed to be put in an ice bucket to bring the temperature down to drinkable.Then the thice cooked chips – they turn up inside a paper cone inside a tin mug and there might have been 10 very pale, limp pieces of potato. Brilliant : the waiting staff emphasises the quality of the meat, hence steaks are cut and priced individually by the kg, but i am certain that those awful chips are the most expensive (£ per kg) and worst cooked item on the menu.
i do not expect to wrestle with indifferent and ignorant staff to eat good steak with a good glass of red at room temparature, enhanced by the occasional chip.
