vb, i hate to show you this: (my rant on the south city grille) Bad Restaurant Experiences....
it's in the middle of page 3.
i might be willing to give it a try if that's where everyone decides.
'bug, you and i will work something out if all else fails.
if thanksgiving week is too difficult for everyone else, we could always do it sometime between now and christmas/hannukah/festivus, and just make it a holiday get together.
who'll bring the festivus pole?
Bucky, if you've been going to SCG every three weeks or so, then you had to be there at least once when I was there. I first went about 3 months after it opened with a client. I loved it. I started bringing all my clients there as a result. I always had the best table, regardless if I called ahead or not. My clients were always very generous tippers, I insisted. Anyway, I got friendly with the managment and the chef. Shortly after, they opened the Mountain Lakes place and then the Jersey City place. I've never been to either, I do hear good things about them.
There was a noticable decline in service about 2 years ago for about 6 months. My (ex) husband took his entire staff there for a christmas luncheon 2 years ago and was sorely disappointed. He actually wrote to the owners about the experience he had, and also cited all the wonderful experiences I'd had. Long story short, it took a while, but eventually someone got back to him with an offer of free dinner for two any evening. It was the right gesture to make.
I've changed my line of work so I don't dine with 'client's much any longer. I've been back to SCG only abut 4 times in the past year, instead of my usual 15-20 per year. I was pleased with the food and the service the last three times I'd been there. Most of the staff has changed, so no one really knew me. Still, the service was good.
Having said that, naturally, I'm open for any location as long as I can drive to it, and drive home again.
