You can find better somewhere else
I came here during restaurant week with an open mind, and a positive attitude.
I left feeling bitter and cynical.
There were a few positives, thus the two stars, as opposed to one. The atmosphere is nice, thought a bit more dull than I was expecting. I was very excited to see that they served Lindemans Framboise beer. I had had it once before in NYC, for $14 for a bottle. It was expensive, but it was delicious and the bottle filled my glass twice, so I thought it was worth it. When I saw it one the menu here for $10, I ordered it immediately. But this time, no bottle! Just one glass! I had the baked brie for an appetizer. It was fine, but my friend's beer-cheese beignets were amazing! The service was fine, nothing to complain about.
Now the negative: For my main course, I ordered ""The Famous Shrimp Bag."" I like to think when a restaurant modifies any item with the words ""the famous"" it means that they do a really good job with it. Apparently, I'm wrong. They could've called it ""The Famous Salt Bag"" to make it far more appropriate. (I'm sure you can come up with other nouns to fill in there.) The pastry bag was filled with a mix of rice, herbs, shrimp, and mushrooms with no discernible flavor, other than salt, a flavor that was echoed by the lobster sauce that surrounded the bag. I appreciated my sweet beer all the more, as it was perfect for washing the taste of the food out of my mouth.
Needless to say, I won't be going back to pay an absurd amount of money for food that might give me a stroke.
