Street -- what to get for lunch today?
Well that was an absolute disappointment. My friend and I split a salad, and had two dishes off of their Bites menu, and along with two non-alcoholic drinks we were set back $50 (including tax & tip) for a lunch that was just OK.
I like the idea of this place, but I certainly don't see the value there, and the aesthetics (orange orange everywhere) leave something to be desired. Couple all of this with incredibly slow service, especially for a lunch service with only a few tables total, and I could not recommend this place.
For the record, we shared the following items, all of which were fine, but certainly not stellar or noteworthy in any sense:
Spinach Varenyky -- these were good; I liked the lemon and sour cream pairing, but they were so fried that I didn't get much spinach flavor, and even less cheese (as in none)
Mung Bean Pancakes -- Umm, there's pork belly in there? Are you sure? And when I read hot mustard sauce, I thought I would get some ... I don't know ... heat with the dish. This aside, it tasted fine, just not great.
Saigon Chicken Salad -- the best dish of the meal, this is still a very uninspired salad. The ingredients were all quality, and I liked the flavor, but I felt like this is a salad I could easily surpass at any of the Thai places in NoHo ... without question.
So $38 + T&T, coming out to $25/person for food that was just OK (and which can easily be eclipsed by seeking out local ethnic options, which I know is not the point of this place, but still!) and I am happy to say I shan't step foot in Street again.
