Truc - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The Good - Scallop on bed of soft corn topped with roasted asparagus. Also duck carpaccio with misson figs. Berry Cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream. Wonderful juice is this excellent creation.
The Bad - Trout stuffed with crab. Non-descript and dried out taste. Chocolate Gateau. Dried out with no flavor and a pathetic ice cream. I think coconut.
The Ugly - restroom area that would be ok in a dingy bar, not a nice restaurant. Pacing of meal was very poor with long waits in the beginning, middle and end.
Service - waiter couldn't poor wine without spilling. Just as the Globe article mentioned.
All in all I would head elsewhere.
Just curious...when did you go go? Labor Day weekend is very funny around Boston..either "A" game or "throw in the towel." I haven't been to Truc in a few months but they have a new chef and it's supposed to be great...duck carpaccio..raw duck..that's a new 1 for me..is it more of a duck proscuitto? cured..that they call carpaccio?
