Scott Beattie out at Plum Bar!!!!!

http://www.tablehopper.com/lush/scott...

Sounds like he didn't want to go....I was there on opening night at PB. Mr. Beatie was there even bussing tables as things were not quite firing on all cylinders....As far as Plum goes...my one and only meal there for dinner was quite nice..dating back to their third night being opened...Since then I have tried brunch, which was god awful....A burger asked for rare came out beyond well done. They apologized and sent out a side or pork sausage on the house which came out raw. My Linden black lager in a bottle was flat....The drinks at Plum Bar were solid and had promise. The food is a joke. $13 for a grilled cheese, $14 for a hot dog? Lets hope Haven fares better...

Hawker Fare [Oakland]

I really wanted to like this place, but at best it is average. Very little if any balance to the dishes. Has anybody asked were his proteins come from? It seems like the dishes are priced at a premium considering it is mostly rice, which is good only half the time....

Next weekend is the last for Fatted Calf at the Berkeley Farmers Market

The sandwiches at Fatted Calf in SF are not to be missed...agree on Cafe Rouge with some items. I definately prefer their Boudin Noir to FC, but find most things heavy on the salt.
