    Can we just bring back Red Palace? Vendetta was a failure. No amount of pop-ups or southern fried chicken cook-offs will make this place good.

    I went when they first opened with Chef Figueroa. It was a great meal. Then he suddenly left and the dinner thereafter has gone from bad to worse. What was once billed as a red sauce Italian restaurant now barely serves passable fried pub food. Just bring back Red Palace. It should have been a damn crime against antiquities to have gotten rid of all the decor in there. Real shame.
