We previously dined here and liked it. It is pricey, $75 per person with tea and coffee as the only drinks. Tonight was just plain bad. Maybe a new chef, or a new owner. Tapas: the pork sliders had a barbecue sauce that overwhelmed (watch this theme). The soup had bacon that was much too smoky, and the smoky flavor overwhelmed. The pork and grits was too much food, the grits, strange, and the pork overwhelmed by the sauce, couldn't tell it was pork. Salads: the tomato salad with cornbread was overdressed and just not pleasant to eat. The Pok Choi was the one highlight of the night. Mains: the duck breast was good, but the sides were inedible. The flat iron steak was overwhelmed by the teriyaki sauce, and the sweet potato just bland. The cornish hen was undercooked, inconsistent, and covered with an overwhelming peppery barbecue sauce. The sides were again inedible. Desserts, the donuts were overwhelmed by the strawberries and the chocolate sauce, and the cheesecake was okay unless the caramel sauce came in contact with it. Then it was a diabetic coma, overly sweet. This was our last trip there.
