I have been saying this for a long time but great restaurants are usually distinguished by a single or a few dishes. You go for “the lobster” or the “chicken rice” or the “creme brulee.” Yes, there are some restaurants who are able to put together an entire menu of just winners but that is very rare, so rare that smart restaurant owners are now focused on menus that contain just a single item. Donuts only. Pizza only. Barbecue only. The hottest restaurants don’t have diner-style menus who employ chefs that can cook a million different dishes.
Given that premise, my question today is why does Lombardi’s, a world famous pizza place that has lines out the door, serve soda by the jug that is both flat and off-flavored. We all thought it was either diet soda or some sort of regular / diet hybrid that made it taste pretty much like crap.
It’s inexcusable and also terrible business because eventually, someone is going to put up a bad review - like me - and it will have had nothing to do with their core business: pizza.
Shame on you.
Other businesses should learn from your mistakes. My actual review for this establishment below.
