First return visit to Saratoga in years to catch Dave Matthews at SPAC. Dave never disappoints but Hattie’s did. We had enjoyed in past visits. First the drinks: wife and I both had mint julips that tasted like pure simple syrup. Sweetness overwhelmed bourbon and mint. Sent it back for a beer and remake which then presented as pure bourbon on rocks. Wife had calfs livers she enjoyed. However her main course: shrimp gumbo. Shrimp lacked flavor, could have been frozen. Gumbo sauce uninspired, mushy consistency. The little okra they did add should have been firmer. My fried chicken, their signature dish just ok. But what really disappointed was the collard greens: over sweetened to the point that couldn’t taste vegetable or pork, again just sugar. Unfortunately our last visit.
