Foundry Tasting Menu?

wasabica Nov 15, 2009 05:29 PM

I went to the Foundry on Melrose when it first opened and was not overly impressed and never went back and did not think much about it. Recently, I was quite upset at the way it went down for Chef Greenspan on the Next Iron Chef and I decided to show some love and go back to the restaurant to try the tasting menu, which is supposed to be well-renowned. Or is it?

Some friends recently went and ordered off the menu and had very ok food and not so good service.

Perhaps the tasting menu is a step up? Has anyone had it recently? How would you describe the quality and creativity of the ingredients and preparation? I could not find any relevant reviews on this board.

I have upcoming reservations and am toying with canceling them.

    I've been a couple times and was never impressed. I had the tasting menu once (probably about 10 or 12 weeks ago) and cannot remember what was served. Neither time was the restaurant bad, it just wasn't memorable.
