kind of boring

Of course, I shoulda gone to Jar before my onset of boredom with American food.

We went for brunch. I kept thinking the pot roast surely must be pork. But no, it’s beef. There was nothing else for me to eat. That is, nothing else looked interesting to me. It came down to the chilaquiles or lobster benedict. I couldn’t bring myself to pay $12 for chilaquiles. So instead, I paid $16 for the lobster benedict.

They tried to jazz up eggs benedict:
Lobster: great idea.
House made char siu: nice touch, it was ok.
Pea leaves: I love love pea leaves. Love the fresh sweetness, love the texture, how the tender leaves hold their texture even after cooking. But the problem is, that beautiful sweetness overpowered everything. It rendered the lobster bearnaise completely flavorless. And it completely dominates my memory of this dish.
Plus I’ve had pea leaves and char siu hundreds of times, so it just wasn’t special. The eggs were perfectly poached.

My $12 bloody mary was an overpriced disappointment. The $4 coffee was very good.
I thought most of the brunch items were overpriced. The dinner menu doesn’t appeal to me either.

Jar sucks!

This once excellent restaurant has really fallen down and needs to shape up or be put out of its misery. Someone needs to tell the receptionists that this is no longer a really hot restaurant allowing them to mistreat customers and act so…

Excellent food and service

I have been wanting to dine at Jar for quite a while and my boyfriend surprised me for my birthday the other night with a reservation here. We shared the porterhouse for two - amazing! Our server was completely on the ball...very nice…
