Leftovers from Ella, or, A View From the Other Side of the Roulette Wheel
Restaurant consistency is a prickly issue. Sometimes I think eating out is like spinning a roulette wheel: Which version of of that dish, heck, that entire eatery will show up this time? Because I can say with certainty that I've experienced major service glitches and off-dishes in all of the very best restaurants in town save for Kihachi and The Refectory.
Where am I going with this? Well I just read a less-than-favorable review of a new place-Ella-that I favorably reviewed this week (considering I work for the same company but work completely independently from the other reviewer, I guess it's that great roulette wheel in the sky spinning away again).
