Restaurant at ICA -- anyone been?

I understand there is a Wolfgang Puck restaurant at the ICA. Has anyone eaten there yet?
It's passable, nothing great nothing bad; sandwiches and salads with a few Asian ingredients here and there. Not particularly memorable - ate there in late Dec last year, already forgotten what I had.
We were at the ICA in January, found ourselves starving after a couple of hours of touring the museum and STILL didn't eat at the restaurant (even with the limited options around). We were turned off by the crowds, the prices, and the general paltry-ness of the diners' food. Even though we didn't try it, I'd say stay away.
re: a l i c e
Even though the area doesn't have much for options, you don't need to starve or eat bad food. Here's a quick rundown of some of the better options:
Daily Catch in the Courthouse (not as good as the original, but still good)
Eastern Pier II (Chinese seafood) towards the World Trade Center
If you walk past the World Trade Center, you'll find Fresh City and Pressed Sandwiches for lunch and Legal Test Kitchen (which unfortunately can be inconsistent).
You'll be able to find better food if you leave the Seaport area, but it's not bad food.
And yes, I left off Anthony's Pier 4 intentionally. But it also might be an improvement over the ICA restaurant.
Thanks for all the input ... looks like a "skip". Last time I was at the ICA, we ended up at the Barking Crab for surprisingly good steamers and beers. Note to self: Keep it simple stupid.
