I grew up with this place in Brooklyn in the 1960's. Though I haven't personally eaten "The Kitchen Sink," the free birthday sundae brings me back 50 years later. Long live Jahns!

Decided to eat a quick dinner here because the location was convenient, and I figured that since Jahn's had been in business just about forever, it would be a safe bet. On the plus side, the menu is pretty diverse, and the prices are reasonable. The chef was willing to switch the sauce on my pasta, and the service was quick, but that's as far as it goes. Our cups of soup (yankee bean and chicken noodle) were not bad, although they could have been hotter). My pasta was totally overcooked, as well as the "primavera" vegetables, which seemed to be either out of a can, or from a frozen source. Definitely not fresh. Both of us are bread lovers; I eyed the white rolls in the bread basket, deliberating for quite some time. Overcome by curiosity, I squeezed one. It felt like "Wonder Bread", so I changed my mind really fast. My dinner companion ordered a "BLT on a plain toasted bun, no tomato, and romaine lettuce instead of iceberg". The waiter said "okay", but what she received was a seeded bun, and the sandwich included tomato and iceberg lettuce. We weren't sure if it was the waiter or chef's fault. The restaurant, including the rest rooms, seems to be in great need of a renovation; our visit there felt like a trip back to the 1950's or '60s.
