General Greene

I went last night with a friend and had an amazing meal, the best I've had in a long while. Here's what we got:

deviled eggs
radish and sea salt salad
lamb and cucumber salad
vegetable ragout (indescribably delicious)
ham and gruyere bread pudding (wow)
chicken pot pie
very good cocktails
salt-encrusted chocolate chip cookies for dessert

Because the menu is all small plate options, you get a lot of face time with the wait staff. I've seen some on-line reviews objecting to their 'hovering,' but I didn't find it problematic. They brought the dishes in perfect order and were appropriately attentive.

Try it out if you haven't done so yet.

  1. That sounds so good. Esp the radish salad and the bread pudding. Thanks for the review.

    As for value, did you think the plates were sized well for the prices? I'm still just as hungry but broker than before...
