New but not improved

I've been going to this Lebanese Taverna practically since the day it opened, and have always loved its tasty Mediterranean food, especially its vegetarian variety. The restaurant has reopened after a significant refurbishment, it looks good but the menu has been shortened, and the food was pretty awful. The Fettoush was sour, the Fallafel rock hard, the hummus tasteless, the pita cold. They seem to have become the proverbial tourist trap, catering to the visitors from nearby hotels and no longer to its long time loyal local customers.
