It's sad to watch a restaurant slide downhill. Kinda like watching an old dog limping around in misery. The crew seems hypnotically detached from reality, moving around in a trance. What can I say about the food - pretty ho hum, average. Risotto was crunchy and flavorless, cooked in water, not stock. The accompanying lamb shank was tough, under cooked, and cold. I will say the sauce was very delightful and full flavored, however. The atmosphere is a wierd mix of 1980's coffee shop and New Jersey Greek Diner. Nothing fit together. The climate control was on the hot side, causing me to think about dozing off. I don't think we will be back. There are too many choices in Palm Springs.
