The bread rolls are back. They remind me of the pretzels you get at the ballpark. Not that that's a bad thing. There were times at the Flying Stars of yore when the rolls were too hard to really make it through.
We actually made it out for dinner at under $20. By ordering a garden delight sandwich and machacado (and nothing else). The Nob Hill star seems as busy as ever. The machacado seems much the same as when it first landed on the menu, though the dishware has changed. Tonight's batch of red chile has some kick and sass to it.
The main highlight of the garden delight sandwich is the artisan olive bread. But, hey, I understand that it's hard to find good tomatoes this time of year. There just needs to be a general backing off of the salt. No portion complaints with this sandwich - there's plenty of it, it's just not very flavorful. The herbed cream cheese is a good idea, but there's not enough of it to make an impact. I nice spicy mustard might bring out some personality in this sandwich. As it is, I wouldn't order it again.
So the Flying Star is becoming my once in a blue moon restaurant option. The Wi-Fi is nice, but the price to value ratio isn't back to where it once was.
