We all have those places (whether theyre a bodega or a coffee shop or a midtown lunch spot) that we dont expect much of, but that somehow fail by a long shot to meet even those low expectations. We keep coming back because we think, How could they possibly get it wrong again? But they do, over and over again, until finally you just cant take it anymore and you blog about it! For Lost City, that place is the Fairway Caf (is there a more colossal, abysmal failure in all the New York food service industry than this lackluster, indifferent, actively frustrating cafe?) and its fine employees (sullen, unsmiling, slow, unresponsive, incompetent, uncommitted clockwatchers all). Wed like to know which places get you this worked up, and why?
