Comment from Robert:
We live nearby and are semi-regulars, rooting for Oregano’s eventual success despite its admitted problems. When we stopped in for dinner a couple of weeks ago, we were glad to learn that there are indeed changes afoot. One of the original founders, Carlos, introduced himself and told us that, after not being involved since the early days, he has returned to try to steer a better course, hands-on. That means focussing on improving service, as well as making some alterations to the menu such as adding some American-style food to the menu and (answering our biggest gripe) introducing daily specials. Claude, the excellent chef, is still there.
Our meal (and our service) that night was excellent and we can only hope that Oregano will continue the trend and follow through successfully on these and other improvements. It would be a real shame to see a restaurant with cuisine of this quality (which our neighborhood sorely lacks) fail to make it.
