Sounds like me and Sushi Thai. While I generally don't eat a lot of sushi (too much rice and too much money to get full.) but I am in LOVE with their tuna tartare. So imagine how I felt when they swapped sushi chefs. Lucky for me, they eventually got the old one back.good luck. i know what it is like to have a certain favorite dish and then having the restaurant change it or go out of business or they get a new chef who doesn't have that recipe down just as it was before. the chinese place we frequently visit for nearly 50 years now i can always tell when they have a new chef as the flavors change until the other cooks get them straightened out again. luckily none of it has ever been so bad that i wouldn't eat it or didn't like it, but when you have the idea in your head that that is what you want and you don't get it it can be kinda jarring. yeah, i know FWP... enjoy the challenge and the differences.
but back to pizza... there's a new Pizza Cat opened downstate. i doubt i can get there any time but it's good to know that there are places that will let you do fun things with pizza.
Now if I could only remember that, while delicious, ST's TT is very atypical, so the fact I like it does not translate into liking tuna tartare at any OTHER sushi restaurant.
And there seems to be something going on with Central Seafood as well. Dish after dish has become disappointing, to the point where I am down to two dim sum and the soup as things I can actually order.
Continuing with Chinese, Taste of China (our local place) is probably going to become a problem for me as well soon, as most of the things I like are now no longer listed on the menu. They'll still make them for me if I ask, but I suspect that will only last as long as there is someone in the kitchen old enough to remember HOW to make them, and that can't go on forever. And since the only things I really LIKE at the other local place is the wonton, the shrimp skewers and maybe the mai fun, that won't last long either. I'm REALLY hoping the new Thai place that is opening up is decent.
