Mehfil

In fact, service in general at Mehfil needs to be improved, especially if the restaurant hopes to supplement its buffet lunches and sit-down dinners with banquets. The waiter dawdled over the service of our wine, a mediocre Meridien (the best of a lousy bunch) for $22, for about half an hour, and he never even brought the soft drinks we'd requested. The staff in general seems confused about the menu and can't seem to get a dish to a table without wandering around the dining room first.

Still, we were mollified by the appearance of the chef, who brought our dessert of Alphonse mangoes jubilee. He gently flambéed the mangoes for us and poured them over vanilla ice cream. These particular mangoes, an Indian specialty, are rarely seen in the States, and they were much juicier than those we find in our own back yard. So forget Madonna and her Indian-influenced dance steps. The mangoes, among other foodstuffs to be found at Mehfil, are South Florida's most interesting example of cultural crossover to date.
