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 paniniÂ´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? HereÂ´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.
