Worth the drive, plane flight, or boat ride from anywhere!!!
Last year we were so desperate to find a new and fresh place to fine dine, we thought it would take a flight to New York, LA, or across the pond.
Everything was becoming the same. It got to a point where even Morton's was a drag, and I admit, I like Morton's and its genre, but it gets old.
Then it happened... A recommendation, something new to try, namely the Meat Market. The name didn't sound to exciting though. The recommendation was by someone we knew with credibility. Our suitor, knowing too well that with our offensive food snobbery, would put his head in a guillotine. In spite of this he was courageous enough to recommend this place to us. He knew if he failed in his mission he would join the ranks of King Louis and Marie A., (Who before our hero, take them into the heart of town and by the time they would all be through they'd have no place to wear their crown.)
Well, what the heck. I am willing to try anything once. But our friend did not disappoint us, and in fact, got to keep his head. For that matter, the Meat Market did not disappoint us either and they get to keep theirs.
Simply stated it was FUN! It was why I consider to be a real dining experience, an adventure in fine dining. The food was great, from the tasting sample, to the appetizers, to the main courses, and to the obnoxiously incredible deserts.
So I say to anyone who wants advice as to what to eat here. My recommendation is as follows: Start at the top of the menu and as the weeks and visits progress, work your way down to the bottom of it. You won't be disappointed.
Expect to spend a lot of time here too. The staff may appear to be slow, but they're on their game. They're simply giving you a relaxed and unhurried dining adventure to savior witht the food.
Enjoy a meal here for me.
