Quite pretentious and the food can’t hold it’s own as far as I’ve observed. Overdressed salad, tiny portions and just the wrong air once again.

I am sorry that you had a bad experince at La Corte. The overdressed salad seems surprising because we always put the dressing on the side. Be well

I️ didn’t try, but he didn’t balk at a firm handshake. So give it a shot and tell him Rick Stringfellow put you up to it. I’m sure I’ll hear about it on Facebook. Ask for Nick Elmer.
