I ordered the most expensive thing on the brunch menu. When it finally arrived, the crab frittata was very over cooked, tiny and had no discernible crab. Tasted like styrofoam. Thought they had pride in their food. Not!

arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
