I'd just spent the better part of the last hour writing about
our experience in the new restaurant last night, where the
old restaurant used to be. It looked to be the best piece of
writing I'd done in a great while and I was anxious to post.
I clicked on an alert to read someone's comment on another
post and completely lost the entire piece. I obviously still
don't know all the nuances of FB. I don't have it in me to
re-write. I've just fallen overboard, capsized, and turned
turtle at the finish after leading the entire race.
In a nutshell, after much fanfare about the new place, and
reading the menus and imagining what I'd order and what
it would taste like, we came away less than dazzled,
somewhat disappointed, and personally, a bit relieved.
After so many months of feeling so damn bad about how
such a beloved institution could go out with such a whimper,
there was consolation. Not a lot, but a little. They will get
better and more consistent with time and I suspect we will
go back. Eventually
