Went to Barsa last saturday evening. Busy, but not unmanageable as is often the case on King Street. My friend and I sat at the bar and had fantastic service from Brittany. Drinks came promptly and were generous. As the small plates began to arrive (we were hungry and ordered seven of them), other wait staff pitched in to keep things moving with fresh utensiles and plates....We had a great evening thanks to a kitchen who can produce terrific food and a staff who cares enough to provide great service. Run, don't walk....Just don't take my corner of the bar.
Great place to gather for a drink and good casual and not so casual food. Brian Lindsay gets the accolades for pulling this balance off every day.....
Well written and well thought out. However, there is one more critical thing to remember about dining out: Regardless of the "haute" (or not) level of the cuisine, diners do NOT go out to restaurants because they are hungry. They go out because they want an experience, good service, and well prepared fare regardless of the level of estblishment they choose. Every successful restaurant knows this, and the ones that stay in business practice this every day.
Thanks Mayer! That's one less ticket I'll have to worry about.
Thanks for reminding us that something can never be out of fashion if it represents fashion itself. Don't change a thing and I'll gladly put on that jacket for dinner.
Perhaps Shocksplicer has something of a point. With just a few exceptions, some of the grand old standbys are not mentioned or play second fiddle simply because, well, they are indeed grand old standbys and not presently part of the "hot list".... I mean, really, after all the hype, swooning press coverage, and often unjustifiable accolades, isn't the consistently best food and service in town still found at Lucca and FIG? When all is said and done and it's time to stand up and be counted, isn't that what really matters? I appreciate "hot", but only time will tell who is going to cool down.....
