BUSHWICKNYT critic Pete Wells had a bad meal at Roberta's, where no one gave him a fork for his salad, and he couldn't track down a server to tell them that his pasta tasted off. In a new blog post, he contemplates the importance of service in restaurants these days, noting, "no matter the style, no matter the neighborhood, no matter the price, no matter the dress code, good service requires paying attention to the customers. And if we can’t expect that any more, then going out to eat is going to get less and less fun." [NYT]
