While a restaurant might be a chef's playground for dynamic and innovative eats, sometimes it's best to stick to more of the basics. Unfortunately, on my first visit to Chef's, I was not impressed and left expecting more. As the number of stars I've given indicate - Chef's Playground isn't terrible, but it absolutely could've been better. One cold, weekday morning, my brother and I decided to go out into nearby Steveston to try our luck with a new brunch spot. Having skimmed over the Chef's Playground Eatery menu online previously, my brother decided the day had come where we'd go and satisfy our hunger here. After waiting for roughly 10 minutes, we were seated by the lone, friendly server, next to the open kitchen, where my brother and I sat with a warranted anticipation of what was to come - like a kid waiting to open his birthday present, wondering what's to emerge underneath the wrapping. The two items we ordered were: 1) Short rib benny - $16, rib was okay, not as tender as expected, could have had a stronger presence on the plate, hollandaise was okay, eggs were not cooked to soft-boil as requested 2) Truffle mushroom cheesy burger w/ fries - $15, definitely cheesy, but could have been cheesier for a burger that touts itself as "cheesy", truffle could barely be detected amongst the ingredients, patty was a bit thin, fries were not hot, needed a tad more mushrooms While I absolutely do not consider myself a professional by any means, it was easy for me, and my brother, to tell right away what was main issue was with both the dishes. What the meats were severely screaming for was more seasoning. I do applaud Chef's for trying to go a tier-up and deliver food that's more creative and appealing to the average middle-class customer, but I couldn't get over the fact that such dishes had the potential to be so much more. Consider the price we paid for our meal as well; at approximately $40.00 after tax and tips for two people, I expected to leave relatively full and satisfied, but I have to report that this was not the case for me or my brother. For this reason, I have to give Chef's Playground Eatery 2/5 stars. The atmosphere and decor was nice, location was great, service was just fine (way to go, one-woman-army server!), but I definitely expected more from the food. I really want to support this local business, and I encourage you to give them a shot if you're down! Maybe I'll come back sometime in the future to try other items. Considering how many 4/5s and 5/5s there are on Yelp, I really want to come back and see the real Chef's at work.
