I had high hopes for this place after looking at the menu and seeing all of the vegetarian items. Sadly, this place is disappointing to me and my partner.
The service was pretty sad. The hostess was rude, uncooperative (even though we had reservations), inexperienced, and seemingly only interested in some phantom party that never arrived during our 90 minute dinner. Our server was generally inattentive, lacking in knowledge about the specials and menu (and told us he didn't care), and screwed-up our order with the kitchen. The only bright spot was the cheerful visit by the manager.
The salads are terribly overpriced for what you receive. The food was rather bland. And the plating was terrible! A school cafeteria does a better job plating food than this place.
We won't be back. Too bad. This is a great location at Cooper-Young.

I'm with you Jeff. Four cherry tomatoes with melted American cheese? That's their idea of Yakitori? No thanks! Susan, please let us know when they get a new chef.
@Jeff, I have never cooked with sausages in non-permeable casings (to my knowledge). The ones I've cooked have always been stuffed in semi-permeable casings which let outside flavors in very nicely.
For my meat-eating (and sausage loving) family and friends, I pre-soak for 30 minutes in Old Milwaukee and sliced onions, grill until browned and then post-soak in warm stout for 10-15 minutes. Serve with deli mustard on a hard roll.
Todd's Collierville base of supporters are "Sarah Palin Christians," meaning they are racist and bigoted to-the-core, advocates of torture and violence against those of different religions (particularly Islam), despisers of science and education, and champions of governmental corruption, so long as it's GOP corruption because that's "righteous." Unless other, sensible, intelligent people in Collierville resist Todd's base, he will (sadly) be re-elected to the embarrassment of Shelby County and the state of Tennessee.
But did you attempt to sing Defying Gravity, Mr. Davis?
@homer, yes, I very much agree with your assessment of bloated administrative salaries. The same situation is present in the private sector - obscene executive compensation packages that do not correlate with performance. But I know of no solution in today's current environment.
@homer, what do you mean, "more efficiently?"
