Re: “East Bay Deli

Dellz is awesome. Mozzo is good. East Bay is below average. Momma Goldberg is shit.

Re: “Bon Banh Mi

I found it delicious, but the portions are on the small side. The sandwich was a hot dog size for $8.50, with no side. They just need to tweak it, and it could be an institution.

Re: “Butcher & Bee

I went with some friends for brunch a couple of weeks ago and was unimpressed. The food was very good but the prices are absurd. $12 for a pimento cheese omelet that doesn't come with a side is frankly ridiculous. Glass Onion's is better and costs $8. Entering orders on the iPad was obnoxiously slow and screamed trendy zealot. Coupled with the decor featuring purposefully mismatched seating, sparse communal tables, and bare Edison bulbs, it added up to trying too hard.

I loved the food, the atmosphere is okay if you're facing away from the glaring bare bulbs, but it's just too expensive.

Re: “Tattooed Moose, JI

My partner, a friend and I went to Tattooed Moose last night for the first time. The corn dogs were probably the best I have ever had and the smoky tomato soup was delicious. We got the Reuben, Cuban and duck club and they were all excellent. I loved the fries but I couldn't tell they had been cooked in duck fat. The aioli was a tasty addition.

So why the two-star review if I loved everything? The service was awful. After we seated ourselves a young woman came by and dropped menus. We asked for water while we looked at the menus and I asked about their beer list, which was on the back of the menu. She came back in about 10 seconds with the water and we asked for a few more minutes. She cheerfully said "Take your time" ... and she never came back. She brought food to tables near us and walked past a handful of times, but never even looked at our table and never stopped. Finally she ensconced herself at the short bar to the left of the door to the kitchen, staring intently at something on the bar and ignoring everything else around her.

The friend who was with me finally walked up to her to ask about ordering beers and food. She handed my friend the beer and said she would be right over for the food order. As my friend turned around the server went back to whatever she was staring at on the bar and never budged. My friend sat down, looked at her in disbelief, and said she was reading the menu.

Finally the bartender, Ryan, walked over and asked if we wanted to order food. From there the service was okay, but the damage was done. You simply don't pointedly ignore customers for 15 to 20 minutes.

Re: “Jimmy John's

Its subs...They are good, but I don't see what the fuss is about. Quality and menu is on par with Subway, Blimpies, Firehouse and any other of the chains.

Oh and expensive too. Guess they have to cover themselves because they deliver.
