View From the Wing Slams Hotel Monaco’s Poste

A week or so ago, a friend of ours stayed at Hotel Monaco down on 7th and F on the verge of Chinatown. Apparently, the Klimpton Group Hotel also drew the attention of View from the Wing writer George Leff:

Once we had finished our entrees, the waitress brought our check. We asked whether they offered dessert? And she took away our check and brought new menus. No, she wasn’t trying to get rid of us. I wasn’t commenting on all of these deficiencies during our meal, we were more than pleasant! It just never occurred to her that at 11:45 am we might want dessert after brunch. Bad for the restaurant (it reduces average bill amounts) and bad for patrons (it’s hardly anticipatory service, and if she’s unsure if we’ll want something she might do better to ask).

And that’s just part of his complaint. Yowza.
