Tried AK Supperclub on Abbot Kinney

The food here is fine, as the lovey-dovey reviews over on Yelp can attest to, but ate last night and found it super Meh. Perhaps given its predecessor, expectations were too high. Bring back the Wolf. The dudes in the kitchen looked totally uninspired. Wine list short and uninteresting, but that didn't stop our server from not being familiar with it. Servers uninterested or over-eager uninformed. Funny how when the food is bad you suddenly notice how loud the place is. Overcooked greens, cooked-to-a-cinder salmon and seabass (pity the poor fish who died in vain) and everything tasted like it was seasoned with a hammer. Even the very best dish - creamed corn with black truffle - would have benefitted from backing off about 1/2 throttle on the truffle. And enough with the bacon already. We get it: bacon is tasty.

Z-fold paper towels for napkins? That works as long as you plan on dumping a bunch of crawfish on the table and I have a bib. Short of that, keep that stuff in the bathroom and give me an actual napkin, you hyper-affected twit.

Well that was a fun little experiment. Good thing this is only a pop-up... Next!

  1. Wow Z-fold paper towels really? Sounds like grand opening disasters.

    1. Too much black truffle? Can that be? Did it have a truffle oil assist?
