So how'd the kiddush/party go today?

Sorry we missed you, raincheck?

They gotta have a good kitchen on premises...

No, good catering though.

Nothing at all. It's probably better that way, anyone who frequented the BC knows that...

Yeah, all you needed was once to find out anything that looked good on paper (the menu) contained ingredients they were out of... And that's just the beginning.

I never walked in there. Was never in Basel either and from what I hear, I'm not missing anything there...

You mean Basil, Basel is in the other CH ;)

The food is actually not bad, albeit extremely overpriced. (This has been discussed here before, feel free to search)

That statement is very relative.

Value for your money. $70 for a breakfast for two is steep by any (reasonable) stretch of the imagination.

Some eggs, bread, and a few muffins shouldn't cost $70. C'mon, give me a break.

If you have dinner food for breakfast, it can very well cost $70.
I don't believe they charged that for "some eggs, bread, and a few muffins"...

I'm probably exaggerating a bit, but it was over $60 for the items I listed. Here's their breakfast menu. Considering their coffee prices (assume 2 coffees per person) and mandatory 15% tip and tax, it adds up to ~$65.

Cool, I think I'll be there tomorrow for breakfast now that I saw their menu :)
I like their food as well as the overall experience/ambiance and to me that's worth money.
