The Haze seems t have changed much of its basic concept, some time recently. Just went there for lunch. Gone is the mix-n-match "choose a meat/choose an East or West BBQ style" menu. In its place is a more straightforward "this is what you get" kind of approach.http://www.thehazebbq.com/
The bánh mì was tasty, and seemed to be on a lighter, less crunchy bun, which better suited it. But options were now only pork and sausage. The pork char siu was tasty enough, but am I misremembering, or didn't that used to be more of a pork belly thing? Perhaps it was just a special, but I do remember having something more unctuous than that there, once.
Now it seems to be sliced tenderloin or somesuch: meatier, drier, but less challenging to folks not used to huge slabs of tasty fat on a bun. The change saddened me: I was looking forward to moister and tastier meat.
The vast array of side options are also gone: now it was fries, salad or slaw. I'll really miss those times cheese grits were an option.
A fried smelt sandwich is the riskiest thing on the new lunch menu.
The dinner menu, too, has abandoned the old approach, though many of the snacks listed seem interesting.
The sauce sampler at the back is also gone. Not sure if they bring that out for dinner. But just asking for a sauce produces a bottle at the table.
Overall: the menu seems far more conventional. Perhaps most folks found the old concept of choosing, mixing and matching for themselves too challenging...
