Coterie Room or Quinn's Early Sunday Dinner
Need a dinner place that's open by 4 so we can return the rental car and get on our 7:40 flight. I've made reservations at Coterie, but will Quinn's be a better choice? There's a lot of gastropub/comfort food where I'm from so wherever is unique and delicious.
I considered Walrus and Carpenter but oysters are just not my favorite thing...
I'd say Quinn's, but I'm pretty sure they don't open until 5 on Sunday. Walrus has more than just oysters - I had a nice duck rillete with grilled pineapple and radish salad with foie gras butter there earlier in the week. Unless you're completely against seafood, reconsider walrus.
Coterie room is OK. Food is good, except for desserts (avoid), but the atmosphere is a little cold. The night I was there last, a band came and set up directly behind us 1/3 of the way through our meal. Not pleasant.
re: babette feasts
You've got me intrigued about Walrus again, I love seafood, just not an oyster fan. I'd love to have some foie too as it will be banned in California (supposedly) in a few months. Thanks!
Might just cancel my reservation at Coterie. Will there be a wait on a Sunday for Walrus right when they open at 4 pm?
