Michy's disappointment

My third visit to Michy's proved to be the most disappointing. The flavors just weren't there and the poor sweet waiter just didn't know his stuff. Best dishes of the night (there were 6 of us so we tasted a lot of different dishes) were the ceviche, whole red snapper with a very mild curry sauce and the risotto. The squash blossoms were greasy and the shrimp filling was flavorless. The sweetbreads lettuce wraps were totally dominated by the kim chee. The desserts were OK but nothing really innovative unless you love rice crispies with your panna cotta.

  1. Well...it sounds like there were some "goods" at Michy's......ceviche, whole red snapper, risotta.....The desserts were OK too.....So it doesn't seem as if it was a complete disaster.....

    I've been there 4 times....and each time was solid....This was your third time there....so you must have had some "goods" on your prior visits....or you wouldn't have returned for third time.....

    Do you think it might have been an "off" night?....Is the restaurant 'trying too hard' with the exotic dishes when they might be better off staying with the basics that makes that place so great?......

    Maybe they get a "pass" this one time....and you try again?

    1. I've never had a great meal from start to finish at Michy's. When I go there, I try to have an app, entree and dessert.

      I will say that the 'hits' are spot-on. I had a pork jowl ravioli with pork belly and a cider sauce that was one of the best dishes I've ever had. The bread pudding was a revelation the first time I tried it.

      I've never had anything that completely missed, but was just off target either in execution or flavor, and they definitely get more right than they do wrong. Sorry to hear it didn't do it for you on this last visit.
