My journey along the yellow brick road to becoming an RD
That place sounds good! Sorry to hear it lacked the "wow" factor, at least it tasted delicious! :DI never thought to have chocolate in a savory dish...now I wanna do some experimenting!!
That food looks great but I definitely agree that poor service can definitely ruin the entire meal especially if the server acts as though they could care less to wait on you!
Wow what an amazing restaurant! I love all the unique combinations and flavors!
I hate bad service! I used to waitress and bartend so I feel like I have a right saying when bad service truly is so. Plus, I don't think itz that hard. Itz a server's job to be overly friendly and knowlegable about the food and to serve you! Rar!
Yumm, I love venison and that sauce sounds so good...interesting to say the least! Nothing irks me the way bad service does- it can really make or break a meal for me! Hope you guys weren't generous with tipping ;)!
never had chocolate in savory form. but i DIE for chocolate so i bet i would have loved this!
I think your dish sounds amazing, but I agree - the plating it boring. I wasn't expecting that! I'm disappointed that you were let down.
After seeing entrees like that on a menu and taking in the great ambiance, my hopes would be sky-high too.
Chocolate in a savory dish freaks me out!!
Bad service is definitely not fun. I work in the restaurant industry, and being overly friendly is part of the job, so I think that should just be mandatory. Oh well. Chocolate in a savoury dish sounds so weird to me, but I know lots of people who love it!
Love chocolate in a savoury dish...it makes me think of Mexican mole sauce, which is one of my favourite things in existence.
The chocolate pomegranate gastrique sounds amazing! I was first introduced to chocolate in savory dishes when I was living abroad in Mexico during college. Mole (mol-ay), which is a complex sauce made of a variety of nuts, spices and ground chocolate, is one of the most prized dishes in Mexico. It's usually served over chicken, and it's out-of-this-world delicious! Bummer about the service at The Springs. :( Even the best meal can be dampered when servers ignore you! I hope your next visit is MUCH better. :) Happy Tuesday, Chelsea! <3
I love chocolate in all dishes - a chocolate pomegranate gastrique sounds incredible!
Awwr that sucks about the service, but at least the food was delicious. I once went to a place where our waiter barely looked at us at all after he asked us what we wanted. Every time he'd come to our table to give us food or top off water, he'd be talking to another server or something and it was super annoying. Then we once had a server who'd seriously come by every 2 minutes to ask us if everything was okay, which was annoying as well. Extremes are never good... but chocolate definitely is in any form :)
