My friends and I stopped going to NYAJ's after having the most horrible lunch ever. I'll tell you about one of the dishes. It was French onion soup. I was the first to taste it and it had a weird tang to it. My two friends hadn't mentioned anything after tasting theirs, so I thought it was me. Wrong! The next thing I know, one friend exclaimed "what the heck is this?". It was half a lemon all squished up. That was the tang I tasted! Why were they putting lemon it??
We flagged down our server, a really nice guy, and showed him the lemon. He apologized profusely and took the lemon to the kitchen. Several minutes later, the Manager came over and we kept asking him what the heck was a lemon doing in the French onion soup? I asked if the cook was experimenting with recipes that were just fine the way they were, and he said he's experimenting too much. Really! He offered to replace the three soups with some from a batch that he said was just about ready. We love French onion soup, so we said yes. It was not good either. It had very little beefy/onion flavor, and I swear I still tasted a hint of that tang.
The rest of our lunch was just as bad. We won't return, unless it's for coffee and dessert. They haven't ruined that yet.
