A sad review.
It is with sadness and dismay that I write this- a particular twice a week favorite has changed hands, and has plummeted. The previous owner, Elio, has sold his many properties and moved to Thailand, his cheerful and gregarious junior partner has been relegated to anonymous mornings in the kitchen, and the rest of the staff has been completely replaced. And so has the quality of the food. Most of the day the place is packed with loud, wine soaked tour groups, and there is no room for drop-ins or even reservations. Late in the evening there are a few seats, but by then the food is over the hill, with some items that seem reheated (somewhat) from yesterday, and others that seem to have been refried in oil more than once. On our last -- ( I mean last in both senses) visit one carafe of wine was oxidized. And several times a week the pungent and strong smell of fish fills the entire street.
Pleasant enough people, but . . .
