Yesterday 4Food “officially” opened to the public, and we didn’t hear much from the scene (post Labor Day blues perhaps?) Today, however, was a different story. Despite weeks of previews, soft opening hours, and training it sounds like 4Food wasn’t exactly ready for the Midtown lunch rush. Reports have been pouring in all day complaining of long waits, restless crowds, and empty bellys. From Lunch’er Roberto: “Just came back from 4Food and waited close to an hour for my food. People were literally walking out on their orders. Here is a pic of the counter right before I got my food.” And it’s not just people who walked in off the street, even those who ordered online were waiting forever. And there are more complaints in the Forums. 4Food is telling people via Twitter to email them (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you had any issues and they’ll “make it right”.
Either way, consider this your friendly ML PSA… if you don’t get that much time for lunch, it might be worth waiting a little longer for these guys to get everything sorted out before heading over to try 4Food.
