Astral Plane Millennium

Craig LaBan tries the new Astral Plane Millennium and finds that the quirky charm of the former Astral Plane is gone in both the food and atmosphere.

The menu designed by Fischer and executed by chef Gildardo Zavala is all over the place, from an Italianesque section of carpaccios and homemade pastas to Greek salad, curry and numerous Latin flavors. The Mexican-born Zavala, who worked several years in the Italian kitchens of Girasole, has the background to pull it off.

But Astral Plane fails so consistently I have to wonder if the owners are paying close enough attention.
