Noticed there have been no recent reviews of Shaun's so let me fill in with memories of Shaun's when the reviews were written versus a current experience.
Had not been to Shaun's in a while and decided to have Sunday brunch with memories of a very good one quite a while back. Brunch this Sunday certainly replaces those memories.To set the stage - when we arrived at noon, Shaun's was not even one-quarter full. We ordered a rather straight forward burger and crabcake - 15 minutes later, nothing. 20 minutes later asked the waiter after finally getting his attention, who disinterestingly responded that he'd just reminded the not overwhlemed kitchen. About another 8 minutes and a ping pong ball (yes, one) otherwise known at a $16 crabcake surrounded by chopped cabbage (no attempt at making this $.10 worth of green anything else) arrived, shortly followed by a standard burger (also $16) and fries overshadowed by the size of the bun in relation to the burger. Upon questioning whether this was actually the brunch portion of the crabcake (maybe it was an appetizer gone astray) was informed we had been given 3 ounces of crab along with our 10 cents worth of pale cabbage, with some off white grainy mustard sauce to enliven our plate.
If this is what Shaun Doty is putting out, his reputation as one of the better chefs in the city is in serious jeopardy.
