New & Fun
We're taking my brother from Phoenix out to dinner next week and are thinking of someplace with both good food and a little bit of "Wow!" factor. He's not a big seafood lover so we've been debating between Sushi Samba Rio and Custom House. But, we haven't been anyplace new since De La Costa and Aigre Doux, and were wondering if any Chicago Hounds would have some ideas. Thanks for any efforts to steer us to new & fun!
Just tried Blue 13 and was pretty disappointed. It's a cute place with a good concept. Very nice accomodating server.
Overly sweet drink with pomegranate. Wine (a French chardonnay) that was metallic with a bitter aftertaste. They said they were out of the sauvignon blanc.
Appetizer was good -- pork belly with an oyster tempura and a really excellent kim chi. My fish entree was burned and under-seasoned. Couldn't taste any salt or pepper. They were great and comped it, but really didn't need to b/c i ate as much as I could.
It looks like they've been around for at least a few months. I would have expected them to have the kinks worked out by now.
