60 Second Review: Anthony David’s
Anthony David’s – Why the remodel?
You see, we liked Anthony David’s just the was it was before. The newly remodeled space with “clean lines” lost much of the cozy charm it used to have (and seats less, meaning more of a wait).
However, they did expand operating hours, and now offer a daily brunch, which is a nice option.
And another big update is that they’re physically enlarging the space again – taking over the former legal office next door. So that may help offset the wait times in the future.
As far as the food – I was a bit upset that one of our favorite spicy sauces was no longer being made – which was the primary reason for our regular visits. The “replacement” option for my steak dish was disappointing in comparison. But we’re tough customers, and you can rest assured that you’ll probably enjoy the offerings, regardless of the price.
Anthony David’s is definitely an upscale eating option (especially for BYOB), and we hope that Chef Anthony Pino listens carefully to his customers – and would make small changes to ensure their repeat business. However, it is his place, and he is free to do as he wishes. Pino was also heard to be opening another restaurant uptown near 15th Street sometime in the future.
