Is it still the same variety of food, just not self-service? I heard that breakfast for plats is at Goji now. Oh, is Goji still a self-serve buffet?

I went to clarity at LAX TBIT yesterday at 6:53 PM. They had lots of signs telling you where you to go (well done). I didn't realize until that moment that they are closing at 7 PM over the...
