Geeeze was I dissappointed!
I walked in, it wasn't too busy, there was a space at the bar, so I sat down got some coffee from the bartender, and looked at the menu.
The Eggs Benedict looked fantastic, so that's what I ordered. Ok, here we go...
It took forever.
Then when it came it was cold, and I could see the english muffins were not even toasted - I like a toasted english muffin, don't you? I like a little carbon around the edges... something to give it a little crunch as the perfectly poached eggs melt together on top of the toasted-to-perfection wheat-based platform, n'cest pas?
It was all cold - the eggs were cold and hard inside, and under a pour-over Hollandaise that was barely warm. They had made the eggs a few hours earlier or the night before and flash-heated them... TERRIBLE!!!!!!
Who does this? I sent it back gacefully because they were busy and we all have bad days now and then... but if you're a functioning food business - and I don't care who you are - you can't do this sort of thing...
So it came back, still not hot; at this stage whoever is expediting in the kitchen should know that you need to make the order OVER, you can't simply heat it up. Anyway, it was barely edible so I ate as much as I could stand and headed out. Before I left though, I asked the bartender to step outside - she did, and I told her what happened.
She wanted to make it right, but they had two chances already, so no need, but the management needed to be aware of this. I tipped the bartender very well because she was perfect - great service attitude, always a huge smile, not a feather ruffled. But I'd have to ground this place til they get their house in order.
NO ONE pre-cooks and stores Eggs Benedict... Shame on you! Change the name, too. Beauty Shop? C'mon, there was nothing beautiful about that breakfast.
