Summerlicious - Bymark dinner
- sunburn Jul 9, 2004 03:53 PM
This place is essentially a wealthier version of the ubiquitous minimalist restaurant/lounge that inhabit such locales as little italy. If you want a romantic dinner, this is not the place for it. Dance music played on the stereo and the bar upstairs was bursting with young "hip" lawyers and accountants. The two-person tables are large and too close together so that you end up hearing more of your neigbour's conversation then your date's.
The service was professional and unobtrusive.
Drinks : Mojito - not great, it was bitter from overly crushed mint, Mineral Water
Starters: Gazpacho - excellent, Green salad - boring
Mains: Mustard Chicken - well cooked if underseasoned, great horseradish potatoes
Pickerel and risotto - well cooked and tasty, the risotto was a standard risotto - nothing impressive
Dessert: Pear Cake - nice
Merengue and berries - delicious but this is one of those dishes that is too easy to make to really be impressed with it.
Total: $102 inc tax and tip for two
Note that their normal entrees start at $32
Good service, Good food (but nothing impressive), a better choice for a dinner with friends rather then a romantic date.
