Despite having a reservation we were seated at community table. Diaphanous window shades let the sun glare in my eyes. So loud we could barely hear each other. Had to say everything twice. What? Had to say everything twice.
I would've tolerated all of that if the food had been better, but the asparagus salad was just ok and the pizza had me longing for Picco or Delfina. Watery sauce, barely any cheese.
But I'll be damned if I'm not gonna get dessert. Luckily Humphry Slocombe is only a few blocks away. Secret Breakfast (bourbon & corn flakes), Blue Bottle Coffee, and Peanut Butter Curry put me in a much better mood. Amazing, creative flavors - change daily - now following them on Twitter (@humphryslocombe) for the latest so I'm sure this isn't the last of them you'll hear from me.
