Respond to Review of CLOSED: Food For Thought
Review: This restaurant is certainly unique. it is very small and apparently has quite a local following. The seating area is one long bench with small square tables which provides for a cozy communal feel. I got there before it opened and they have a line waiting out the door. The problem here is the food., the lack of selection and the prices which are semi despicable. The Stir fried noodles were gross. they were flavorless and it looked like they took any vegetable they could get their hands on mushed it up and just slopped it in. The saving grace here is the salads. I had the carrot salad and a bean salad and they were both of very high quality using excellent produce and with great natural flavors. When i go to a restaurant though, i like the feel of a menu. here it almost feels like i came in to a lunchroom and got the same slop as everyone. the atmosphere also contributes to that feel. I found it funny how the server would act surprised when someone ordered rissoto (even though it was 1 of only 3 entrees offered and the 7 consecutive people on line before had ordered the same thing). As for the prices. for a main dish and salad it costs 7.5 pounds. considering that this is a half a plate of salad and half a plate of a gloppy main dish (put together on 1 plate) i think that it is exhorbitant and would avoid this place at all costs.
