Oh, the wait.....

Went to Brandywine with a group of fellow diners. We went on a weeknight and the place was packed, as the restaurant is new. They only take reservations for parties of 6 or more. We had a party of 6 and had a reservation for 6:30. I got there at 6:10 and our table wasn’t ready yet as some people were still at a 4-top table (assuming they were going to push the empty 2-top next to it over). We patiently sat at the bar, but the people were not moving. Our server came to apologize and told us that the people had been there since 4:00, yet the restaurant was doing nothing to accommodate us, with a reservation. Everyone else that was coming in was getting seated. Was there NO other tables that they could put us, other that the one that these people were holding up? Someone from my group even went to ask the people how long they were going to be and they said that they weren’t going anywhere. It was just about 7:30 and we were finally seated after the people finally left. I just find it odd that the restaurant did nothing to move the people along after three hours (i.e. offer to have them sit at the bar and continue to look at their phones as they were done eating). Anyway… once we were finally seated, our server answered all of our questions and the food came out of the kitchen at a nice pace. Everyone at the table seemed very happy with their dishes. I would probably go back, but not with a group of six, since it doesn’t seem like they can accommodate.

Roasted beets and strawberries at Brandywine

Roasted beets and strawberries

Roasted beets, strawberries, sheep’s milk cheese and pistachio pesto. Looked pretty on the plate and tasted even better! Summertime fresh and delicious!

Crispy flatbread at Brandywine

Crispy flatbread

Crispy flatbread with nduja, roasted peaches and ricotta – defintely crispy and the nduja had a kick which was complimented by the peaches and ricotta.
