It was very slow tonight and while I doubt Jan was happy about the slow night, I relished in the relative quietness of the place. In all the years I’ve been eating here, tonight was the first time I tried one of their flat bread pizzas. It will also be the last time I try one of their pizza. Why? Because they aren’t sauced. Everything else was as good as it always it.
What can I say? Despite having my turn signal on — yes I still use them — and slowing down to make a left turn onto my property, the idiot behind me decided to go around me on the left side and caused damage all down the driver side of my car.
The place was packed tonight, but thankfully there were no screaming children. Judge Lawrence King, Jr. and his wife Ann were eating at the bar along with the dean of UM’s music school, Shelton Berg and his wife. After dinner we reminisced about the good old days when classic rock was still new rock. Judge King’s stories were the best and involved several famous southern rockers.
Sure it passed inspection well enough to reopen the next day, but many of the same long-standing issues persisted.
It was closed almost exactly a year ago for many of the same issues that get mentioned in every inspection so I don’t understand why they’ve been allowed to get away with this for so many years.
I haven’t been there since the most recent closing and I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to go back. Several other longtime customers and friends of mine that I see in other restaurants feel the same way.
In my opinion, the only way to resolve this is for them to close for awhile and completely renovate the food preparation areas. I hope they do that because I can’t imagine not ever being able to eat at a restaurant I’ve loved and felt very loyal to.
