    Bitchy female maître d. There were two of us and there was a table for three free (odd number) and the jerk wouldn't let us sit down. We left and went to nearby Mole which has MUCH better food!

    We were not that hungry, so we ordered some appetizers. After we saw what they brought to the table, we wished we were hungry as the size of the dishes would have satisfied a ravenous herd.

    If only Foursquare offered an "I did this and it was NOT awesome" option...because the Vegetarian Chili here is the blandest, WORST I've ever had. Don't say I didn't warn you!
