My husband and I went partying for his birthday, the next morning I really wanted him to try the "chilaquiles" they have at Street since to me it was the BEST and MOST authentic ever. Plus we wanted to have a brunch with Bloody Mary's and Mimosas. URGH! I am never going back there.. We wanted to seat outside because it is LA after all and it was sunny outside, it was a little chilly and everyone seating in the Patio had a heater by their table. Ours wasn't working and the waiter made a "how dare you ask me to turn it on" face and took forever to do it, forever to take our order and FOREVER to bring the food and drinks. The Bloody Mary was really not a bloody mary but some concoction with vodka and olives being called that, and the chilaquiles WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! They don't make them authentic anymore, now it's this rare ugly looking mess of tortillas with a bland sauce, peppers! and tons of cheese.. supposedly it came with an egg.. The waiter had the typical I am too good for you attitude, I am doing you a favor, not really working for his tip... I told him that our chilaquiles didn't have eggs as per the menu.. He said that they didn't come with eggs.. from then we went to a discussion of yes they do, to him going no they don't which was REALLY ANNOYING.. Until it ended with why don't you bring me the menu so I can show you THEY DO! And plus I've had them before in this same restaurant. He left all annoyed and came back and said, turns out you are right they do come with eggs, so you should have eggs on yours.. WOW! .. I said if you show me where they are I will be more than happy to eat them.. He kept on giving me crap about it!!! What happened with the customer is always right? Of course I didn't have any eggs in mine, it took me a lot to convince him about it, and it took even longer for him to bring me two stupid scrambled eggs to eat with my now cold chilaquiles.. At the end I realized that this restaurant is no longer the amazing authentic dishes, super good service it used to have. Like many other restaurants in LA it is a has been, where they don't really pay attention to the type of waiters they have, and the fact that they call all the food "authentic" I would really like Susan S. to show me WHERE in Mexico they do those awful things they call chilaquiles now and also where else in the world they make such disgusting bloody mary's.. We left unsatisfied, unhappy and overall very bummed out because I was treating my hubby for his birthday and I really wanted the whole going out partying and then going to brunch experience to be great, since we hadn't done it in a long time.. I am never coming back to this place.. the best of luck to them.. and if you go I really REALLY suggest you ask questions about the "authenticity" and make sure you get what you are paying for.
