Seriously, Park Tavern?

I was at Park Tavern this Tuesday night with a handful of co-workers and exactly 8 other patrons over the course of the night (5-11), and we sat in the back at a nice big square table, next to something that alarmed me: the new sushi bar they’re putting in.

I was assured by our waitperson that they’d had the sushi that is to be served and that it was awesome – which I don’t doubt – but come on. You’re a tavern.

If you’re that hard up for business, which apparently you are, how about throwing energy at some social media efforts? Marketing? Waiting for spring? You have an identity and a brand, stick with it…and make it better.

Sushi at Park Tavern = jumping the shark. IMO.

    crappy service when there are only two table and two servers and one bartender at park tavern = jumping the shark, imho.

    catch my drift?

    "jumping the shark" is already overused. Come up with something original.

    This reminds me of seeing tacos on the McDonald’s menu in Edinburgh…
