blackbird i enjoyed back in march ranks in my top ten all time meals, and my experiences at his other establishments (avec, the violet hour, big star) have all been stellar. when i heard he was opening an upscale grocery/sandwich shop in fulton market i knew it would be a must try lunch venue.
service overall was lacking as the individual handling the inside dining area was not very friendly and was very short with her words. the food took about 20-25 minutes to come out, and after the check was dropped i had to get the attention of another employee (who didn't speak english) to have our server come back to run my card. while none of this is a huge deal given the extremely casual nature of the restaurant, it was enough that i left somewhat annoyed. bottom line...the pb&l is a fantastic sandwich and is worth stopping in for. now that i have tried it however i really see no reason to return to publian quality meats.
