Rude service is actually more accurate. But I come back for a couple of reasons.
1. It is one of the few reasonably priced restaurants in the neighborhood.
2. I love their omelettes.
3. The fries are darn good.
4. Sometimes I just feel like eating in a tavern.
That is what Fanelli's is - a simple tavern that serves pub food and has a constant stream of patrons at the bar. Just because is it in one of the trendiest neighborhoods doesn't mean that it has changed its ways since opening in 1872. It is what it is and will stay that way, thank you very much.
