Dilemma: Little Owl or Fat Radish
Restaurant dilemma. Have friends coming in who want to try one of these. I have been to Fat Radish and loved it. We had a fabulous meal there last month in spite of hearing mixed things.
I have heard Little Owl is overrated and can be very loud with such a small space. But of course, some say it is wonderful and delicious.
Since I have not tried it, and I am sure many of you have been to both, can you help us pick?
I cannot vouch for Fat Radish since I have not been, however I loved Little Owl when I dined there on Friday. The service and food were terrific. True it is small and tables are cramped but it was a great dinner.
I was having a hard time deciding between the sliders and the soft shell crab appetizers, so the waitress allowed me to order just 1 slider for a taste along with the SSC. I though that was a great gesture. For the main, I had the halibut with corn, peas, and pesto vinaigrette along with a side of mushrooms with truffled breadcrumbs. It was absolutely terric. The fish was incredibly fresh along with the really delicious veggies. A perfect light meal for summer.
Ended with the strawberry rhubard crispy with mascarpone gelato and was very happy!
little owl is...quite overrated. and unless you have reservations, the wait for a table more than 2 will be quite long.
i dont particularly care for fat radish but if you have a reservation there, id rather go there then try my luck trying to get a walk-in at little owl.
