Welcome back to the Eater Complaints Dept. where Eater readers are invited to vent, vent, vent, and never get kicked off the boards. Got a gripe or some praise? We're here for you.

Subject: Craft Redux
I wrote awhile back because I was so angered by an experience at Craft that I was driven to speak out on behalf of all people who love going to restaurants for the great food and not for "the scene". Though I had vowed never to go back again, through a strange series of events (too lengthy to get into here), I found myself invited by friends to join them at the restaurant last week. I agreed and had no idea what to expect. Well, Craft Part Deux was completely different.
We had a great table, great service, lots and lots of food and no complaints. Clearly there has been a change in the philosophy of the whole place, because from the moment we walked in we were greeted warmly and not given any run-around. We finally got to try the food this time, and it was as great as we expected -- all things with pork and all of the desserts were otherworldly.
It didn't seem right to only write a complaint and not give well-earned kudos this time. It was great to see a change and now I can't wait to find a special occasion to go back.
