    City Club is trying something new this year by offering a buffet for the last week of each month.Today was the first one, with pizza and salad on the menu. Tell us what you liked and what you didn't like about having a buffet.

    It worked much better than I expected.  I enjoyed the pizza.

    once my kids grew and moved away, I stopped eating pizza. I left the lunch meeting hungary, which probably isn't a bad thing.

    I liked the salad greens. No tomatoes or cucumbers were available when I was in line. I like both of these. The salad dressing was tasty. I am not a pizza fan, but this pizza was satisfactory.

    I know I expressed an aversion to the "B-cubed" format; however, and much to my surprise, it not only worked well but it also was well received at my table although the pizza (which I very much liked) was a bit heavy for some. It would seem that, overall, it's worth repeating.  And, as Adrian said, it was a trial by fire inasmuch as we had 70 or so people availing themselves of the buffet.  Kudos to those that suggested--and implemented--the buffet, especially so if it helps the Club meet its cash flow goals.

    I've got a 7 and 10-year-old, and frankly, I could live the rest of my life without eating another piece of pizza.

    The concept of a buffet may be OK, but pizza and salad for $29 is not it.  On top of that, I went home and was sick to my stomach -- I hope no one else had this experience.  A buffet should have a few more  choices, and at least something from the higher end of the Brown menu.  Put me down as highly unsatisfied.
