Cheap for SoHo, but completely forgettable

My two main critiques: 1. Why serve a mint/bean salad with stems so long and branch-like that they are impossible to eat with a fork? Maybe if you're a donkey or chewing it in the middle of a field it's more fun, but not in a restaurant. The salads that came with the panini sandwiches were tired and damp. The panini´s were ok, but too much crusty bread ruins the experience. 2. I was with a friend, who paid for the meal. He left a large bill on the check plate, expecting change to be brought back to the table. No one returned. Why would anyone take for granted a tip amount? Here´s a novel and polite idea: Let the customer decide. The baked egg and sausage brunch dish was pretty good. Service besides the check incident was otherwise fine.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
