UPDATE: Gothamist just alerted us to the fact that Fornino caved ALREADY. Calling all BALLERS: Abort mission! Fornino is now *off* our officially approved BALLER list.
So I was browsing through the reviews of Fornino on Yelp yesterday and I noticed a potential BREEDER rage trend.
Mostly people liked it pretty ok. I mean, there was some bitching about how it was way too hyped up, and that the service was a bit uneven, but also there was an underlying theme of frustration over the fact that there was no kids menu:
"There is no children's menu. 16 buckaroos for 8 ravioli, and 12 for plain papardelle for the one of the kids."
"My issue is the menu. I'm sure this place does awesome in hipster W'burg, but in breeder Park Slope, this menu has issues. There are no "simple" menu items I could order since of course last night was the night my son decided to be picky. I wasn't looking for chicken fingers and french fries, but maybe a basic pasta I could order as an app would have worked."
and this from Twitter:
"Awesome, but not so great for the breeder. My kids had trouble picking from the menu."
Verrrry innneresting. I wonder if its gonna be a too bad, so sad approach (a la Provini), or is Fornino gonna cave and add chicken fingers to the menu?
Only time will tell, but for now I'm gonna go ahead and add Fornino to our BALLER approved list of restaurants.
