The second time in a week that I was to a restaurant in a location that has failed before, the dish I had was excellent but everything else was either blah or downright not good.
We had other plans but with the water situation the few places we wanted to go to were closed and I had a coupon for this place that had been another restaurant for a short time. Vale has kept the same set up which is fats casual, line up for your food, get it, pay and go look for a table, hopefully to find one that isn't dirty, sticky and still have used plates on it.
I had the small Aci bowl which is normally $7.99 but with the coupon I got it free as long as I bought a drink, which I did and cost $3.52 with tax.
The Aci bowl was really good with bananas, strawberries, granola, something like a blueberry cream sauce but the drink, organic lemonade made with sugar cane and blue agave that tasted like gasoline
If nothing else that 'drink' would keep me from ever going to that place again but the dirty tables was/is even more of a reason not to go back.
