Whoever said change is good hasn’t been to the newly re-located Lallo’s. The atmosphere is a far departure to the cozy, kitchen-style of the original. More commercialized and compartmentalized, you feel like you are in one of those cookie-cutter cafes that appear in the little plazas that have become an unfortunate staple in this city. By grouping itself in a mini-mall filled with imitation chains, it appears that Lallo’s new location is a far cry from its original one.
Waiting for my meal, I had to wonder if they forgot to relocate the kitchen in their move. As the time goes by and your stomach continues to grumble, you become convinced that they must be cooking your food at their old location by Danube and are transporting it over.
The service has always been something I’ve loved about Lallo’s. Just like “Cheers,” it’s a place where everyone knows your name. Unfortunately, on my visit, the waiters at the new location had difficulty recalling the names of the dishes, let alone their customers’ names.
The quality of the food, which used to be synonymous with succulent flavors and rich sauces, appears to be waning at the new branch. I felt little obligation in finishing my meal like I once used to at Lallo’s.
