How to dine at Marea
My wife and I are coming into town for a dinner at Marea--alas, couldn't nail a res at Atera. Would like some recommendations about Marea's food and drink.
re: Nancy S.
I'm with you on this approach, Nancy S.
We go there pretty often, and generally make a truly excellent meal out of the crudos and a selection of pastas.
I feel that the main courses are simply not as good as the crudo/pasta approach, and have learned to eschew them.
This may seem a serious criticism of the restaurant, but one can construct such a fantastic meal without ever getting a main course, that we keep going back.
I ate at Marea 4 or 5 years ago. At the time there had been a lot of talk about Creekstone beef in the news (i.e, NY Times). Marea had a Creekstone steak on the menu. Consumed in shame for ordering a piece of meat in a fish restaurant, I ordered it (rare). That was the best piece of meat I ever ate.
