wow, it sure has changed ...

I have reserved special time to eat at O Vegasm every time that I visit New Orleans, going back to when they were operating out of their old location. So, when I visited last week for Mardi Gras, I once again looked so forward to the food and the service that I had craved. However, what I ended up with on this most recent visit was nothing but a "bad taste in my mouth."
I had seen that they were offering delivery, so I was psyched with the thought that I could enjoy the food even more regularly on this trip, as I was staying in the Marigny area close by. However, when I called to place an order, I was told that there was no delivery available and that they weren't sure which days it would be available. Inconvenient, but understandable, since it is a small business. Anyway, anyone who read my previous review would know that I had really raved about the atmosphere that they had created in their new location, and most importantly about the wonderful service that I received. So, imagine my disappointment when, after waiting for someone to notice me for over ten minutes, I was greeted by a guy who seemed more pissed off that I was there than happy to see me. I think it was the head chef, but I had never been introduced to him, so I cannot say so with certainty. In any event, after minutes more went by without even an offering of a glass of water, I left. Thankfully the food co-op a few blocks away had everything I needed to make a tasty sandwich. I don't know what's happened to this place, but it just isn't the same. Shame.
