Serpentine: High Hopes Didn't Deliver

We'd been hearing quite a bit about Serpentine, all of it good. Serpentine is the second restaurant by the people of The Slow Club, whose food we had enjoyed. So, since we had a day off we decided to meet some friends and give it a shot. The interior decor was quite nice, very lofty and full of concrete. Warm and modern at the same time. The food and service, on the other hand, left something to be desired. We waited forever for our food to arrive, and it was lunchtime, and the menu is small. We have no idea what took so long for our food to get on the table. Once the food did arrive, and we were very hungry, we found the portions to be paltry.

Shrimp and Grits $10.50
Way too much grits and not enough shrimp. The ratio was way off. And the shrimp were really overcooked. Not in a picky way, but in a serious way.

Pork and Egg Sandwich $9
The meat was tender and the sandwich was tasty, but both it, and the portion of fries was very small.
