Aquavit - oops...

Tried the 3course RW menu. Party of 4 on a rainy Thursday night. We had reservations.

The Herring sampler was fine. Easily the best thing of the night, but not worth a trip back.

The salmon was the same as any other salmon. I suppose that by choosing RW to visit Aquavit Cafe, i became a beggar and not a chooser.

The meatballs were plain, as though a fifth-grader had pounded some meat together and forgotten seasonings.

The arctic circle was quite good, but again, it was just goat cheese made into cheesecake with a touch of sweet.

The worst and most disappointing piece of the affair was that the staff let down the magic curtain, the 4th wall - I was not dining in a place that tried to welcome me, I was sitting in a diner with a waitress who was happy to bring me any of the dishes she didn't understand either.

We were surrounded by people in jeans.

We were the last to leave. We received coupons for $24 off our next visit, if it should fall within August. We left them on the table.
