“It was good but didnt match the hype”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

We enjoyed it but our expectations may have been too high! First of all, when our waiter greeted us he informed us that there were about 8 menu items that were unavailable as they had made an "ordering mistake" over the Thanksgiving Holidays. So, the things i really wanted to try were not available (those might have been great but who knows?). So, my wife decided to try the Chicken Soup because it has been billed as the, "Best in NYC". In our opinion, it was average and we have already had much better an many other locations. Since my first two choices were unavailable, I settled for the Grilled Cheese and Split Pea Soup. The soup was fantastic (thick and quite flavorful) and the sandwich was pretty good. The green apples was an interesting touch and I liked it. However, given what we had heard, we really expected more and might have experienced if the entire menu had been available. The service was ok but not great. We may give it one more try but not until we have tried many other places first!
