RW - Teatro

SEH Mar 6, 2007 06:22 AM

It's been a while since I had a really good RW success at dinner but since we were going to the Opera House on Sunday anyway decided to try Teatro's version. We were pleasantly surprized. Really good service even though the place was packed and full for the night. I believe all/most of the RW selections were items that were also on the regular menu:

App - choice of...
- Steamed Black Mussels with Smoked Tomatoes and Pesto (reg menu $14)
- Salad - sorry don't remember what
- Eggplant something

Entree - choice of...
- Mustard Glazed Atlantic Salmon with European Lentils & Cavolo Nero (reg menu $25)
- Pork - huge chop w/ ???
- ???

Dessert - choice of...
- trio of sorbet (reg menu $8)
- Tiramisu (reg menu $8)

DC and I both started with the mussels. Really good -- plump fresh mussels are out of the shell and in a broth great for dunking the wonderful bread. This is just like a dish I had the one time I've been to Mistral. Next was salmon for me and pork for DC. Everything was regular menu sized portions and tasty. I'm not one much for dessert endings but we both got Tiramisu. I was full so only had a bite and I'm not even sure what it's supposed to taste like but I guess it was good. At the regular prices even if I did not order dessert, the meal was still a value. Glad we went and looking forward to going back again when the place is less crazy. It's been a couple of years since we've been. The noise issue has been addressed by panels on the wall.

    I always enjoy coming here and I love it's an old synagogue. Price isn't too high, food quality and quantity is great. I even enjoy how loud it gets assuming i'm not trying to have a quiet romantic dinner.

      No offense (and I agree with you that this is a great place), but I wish people would stop posting about the noise level. From what I gather, when they first opened that was a serious issue, and a deal killer for some. But they now have very squishy carpeting and accoustic panels on the walls, so even when bustling (i.e., every night) the noise level is no different than any other busy restaurant.

        I'm with you Blumie. Way too many references to a volume issue that no longer exists. Non-believers should go back and let us know what they think now that updates have been made.
