After nixing Melia’s (my daughter) wish to have her birthday party here, we decided as a family to go to lunch at Jekyll and Hyde restaurant in NYC. I am sure some people love this place, I am not exactly sure who. Maybe there are things to like about it but my husband and I thought it was pricey, dusty and the food as close to inedible as I have ever experienced. I commissioned my daughter, Jaya, to (literally) type up her and her sister’s opinions of this restaurant. I think they hit the nail on the coffin (ha ha).
