Watch your pie bake in a wood-fired oven at this national chain with global culinary influences.. In Short Founded in Beverly Hills in 1985, these eateries with the trademark yellow, black and white color scheme have spread nationwide. The decor consists of simple wood and glass with roomy black leather booths. The thin-crust pizzas come with innovative toppings from Asia, Latin America and the Southwest; signature pizzas like the Original BBQ Chicken and Jamaican Jerk Chicken compete with old standbys like pepperoni and traditional cheese. Pastas, salads, soups and sandwiches round out the menu.
Ruined before entry.
Rarely have I had the opportunity to experience such a complete breakdown of a restaurants operations without even getting in the door.
The hostess staff was dealing unsuccessfully, with a large party, having lost control over the seating on this party. Several smaller parties were seated before we were (a party of 2).
When confronted with this fact the hostess staff seamed at even a greater loss than they were before. A manager came by... We pointed out that that had already NOT HAPPENED he asked us not to make such a fuss.
I told him that when he learned to run a restaurant we might think about coming back. We then left, never to be seated or eating.
I would also wish to point out that at no point did anyone offer any apology or regret. None.
