grey dog

grey dog coffee. i don't really know what to say about this place. i see what they are going for, but i just don't buy it.

another menu that tickles my panic nerve. the sandwiches are numbered and you have to order by number and then you decide what kind of bread and then you stand in line and you pay in line and people are bumping into you and if you want water you have to get it yourself from the stupid cooler using those cheap plastic cups and then you claw your way to an empty table and wait for someone to say "CANDICE!" and then you stand up so they can see you flag them over and then they deposit your order on your tiny table and you realize you need ketchup....which is all the way on the other side of the crowded restaurant.

some other annoyances:

1) there is an arrow on a sign that reads "refills." but you have to pay for refills. refill rhymes with freefill. so you don't pay for a freefill. other wise it's a payforanewfill. a new fill. not a REfill.

2) the red stuff in the tabasco bottles is NOT tabasco. it is texas pete's cayenne pepper sauce. if you know, you know. big difference. and why the dupe? why not just keep the texas pete's in the texas pete's bottle?

i hated my soup. minestrone. it wasn't soup. it was thick tomato paste with some zuchhini and macaroni noodles. um, yah.

the sandwich was in inedible, too. unless your mouth opens as wide as lindsey lohans. or have all your front teeth pulled like the hookers in third world countries.

foul mood much? yes. i hate you. and you, and you, and you.

(grey dog coffee is on carmine street between bedford and bleecker)

Yeah and I don't get the hype. I've been about 5 times, and every time I'm excited to go, and in the end I'm dissapointed. Sandwiches are nothing special, and can a man get some fries instead of chips?
