I have heard a ton of reasons for moving on from restaurants.
But leaving a restaurant behind due to HVAC issues isn’t one of them that I can recall.
Yet, that is exactly what has taken place. My wife and I have had to cease going to one of our favorite dining spots because the HVAC is terrible. I’m just not willing to spend my money on going out to dinner only to sweat into my entree. That just makes zero sense to me. And, it’s such a shame because the place is superb otherwise. With a simply HVAC upgrade, this restaurant could be one of the best in the city. A restauranteur who wouldn’t make a simple HVAC change in order to keep customers is a new one for me. Each time we were seated in the dining room, it was uncomfortable. The way the kitchen works is that it’s basically open. So, there is really no where in the smallish dining area where you can hide from the kitchen heat. Hence the need for some just basic HVAC. Instead, they limp along with this completely outdated HVAC system. It’s not even commercial grade! Within minutes of sitting down, I can feel the sweat starting to slide down my back. By the time the apps get there, I’m mopping my brow. I don’t even want to get into what a mess I am by the time the entree is complete. It’s so bad that we have never even tried dessert there. Well, we’re done with it. Although, I think we may try to talk them into a take out situation.
