FORGET THIS PLACE...unless you want a weekend brunch with excellent selection, quality food, and a pleasant atmosphere. The tight seating actually adds to the experience. Instead of creating friction, it actually creates community and stimulates conversation. Al Fresco is an alternative, but we passed. Service, or lack of, is typical of a brunch setting. No complaints. The food is actually better than I recalled from several previous visits, but the discontinuation of live music, especially the stringed quartet and jazz ensemble, is a crying shame. The phrase "conspicuous by their absence" comes to mind. That was the Bristol's edge over other choices, and they have surrendered. Then again, try to find a place that offers full selection, an omelet station, a waffle station, and live music for under $20 in any city.
