Ya'll make it sound like its absolute shit
I've never gotten that from here
I have always liked what I've gotten from IPO, but it was in desperate need of a new menu.. and honestly, I think the menu needs to be ever-changing. When you are a place that specializes in tapas, customers taste more menu items in a single visit than they would if you only had large plates. After 3-4 visits to IPO, I had the entire tapas/salad/soup menu.. many items more than once. Last time, we both got entrees simply because we didn't want the same stuff we already had before.
I know that there are plenty of restaurants who never change their menu, but it doesn't seem to fit with this type of place NOT to. Seasonal specials (more than 1) should be a given when you're working with small portions and people ordering several items per visit.
