First Impression: Nice location...hmm, outdoor seating; that's nice. Open the door... uninviting, cafeteria-like. Echo-voluminous. Should I sit down for table service, or is this an order-at-counter joint? No indication. I see a counter at the other end of the room, far from the door. I pass a cooler full of craft beers. A flat screen TV is over the counter area...."How does this work? I ask. "Should we seat ourselves?" "Order and pay here", is the reply. We will bring your food to your table."
Okay, I'm wondering... Where is the menu??? Nothing on the wall. The guy points out the trifolded little take-away menu on the counter. So, I need to make a decision here at the counter. "Where are the beverages?" I ask. He points out a chalkboard, sitting on the floor behind the counter... all craft beers (nice assortment/pricey). "I don't see any wine," I prod. "We really aren't abouit wine here," the response. "We are about craft beers." "But my wife would like a glass of wine." Come over here" he says. I walk behind the counter where there are four bottles of wine. "Prices?" I ask. He points to the teeny grocery-style price labels. "By the glass?" I ask. A second little label announces $10 for a glass of decent Malbec. "But we are eating pizza," I protest. "We will work on it," the response.-----I finally order... pizza, a coke and a glass of water. The guy pushes a tablet at me, which sums the bill and requests a signature. But, it also prompts for a tip: 15%-20%-25%-30%..Just Touch The Amount....THIS BEFORE ANY SERVICE HAS TAKEN PLACE. Amazing. I'm wanting to leave, but I will see this through...
The pizza was good, not amazing. This place is designed to be a convenience to tourists and to part them with the contents of their wallets without need to provide ANY service or ambience. Locals (the ones I speak to) will try the place once, then be done.
This is a new business at writing. I'm hoping that the owners pull it together as a result of reading this and other such reviews.
