Etsuko's Gambatte Itterashai

Location: Santorini's Mediterranean Cuisine
I think the food was overall decent but the service was quite dreadful. Since we were in a big group and content with socializing though, it really didn't affect the experience. But seriously, there is no reason why I should have had to do their job for them. Mandatory 20% Gratuity is pretty disproportionate to service. Had they been super busy and were pressed for tables, it would have been justified. I think they just need more servers. It did not look like they had enough.

Anyhoo, our guest of honor Etsuko is taking a new job out east in Albany, NY at Vicarious Visions. She'll be joining Romy out there. Who knows if they will be on the same project?

Chicken thing. Good sauce. Could have been juicier but it was not dry.
