Tornado: changes not for the better?

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

Ken's on Monona Drive has some of the best meat in town.

Ken’s is fairly reasonable but it’s not the same quality of meat you would get at Jenifer, or even a Jacobsons.

Went to Tornado the otehr night.

Had the grass-fed steak au poivre and it was brilliant. Done just perfectly, nice flavor, good sauce, tender but not mushy. I approved. One of the better steaks I've ever had, to be honest (not quite *the* best, but pretty effin good). My lovely companion had a NY strip that was also delicious and too big to finish.

What WAS disappointing is that they changed their fries. They used to have these giant steak fries that were super-crispy outside but fluffy inside, and were often the highlight of a meal for me. Now we've got a smaller portion of more standard "frites"-style fries that weren't cooked as well and seemed a little limp. They tasted fine, especially when they'd been soaking up steak juice, but it was disappointing that the big crispi-fluffy ones were gone.
