Nightingale on Lyndale

Have heard nothing about this place. Glanced at the menu one night months ago, but have not tried it. Anyone?

  1. I've only had a couple snacks / dessert / drinks there. All of it was quite good, reasonably priced (fairly shocking considering locale), and it's a lovely space.

    They had a dish with Finger Limes in it, but we didn't order it, but I was curious as to what it was like since seeing it in the documentary "The Fruit Hunters" (now on Netflix!), and I asked for one, and they gave me one. I added some of it to my drink (whiskey sour).

    1. Ate their once. Not going back. The space is great, and the ideas on the menu are nice, but the execution needs some serious work. Plating was pretty but nothing was seasoned properly. Had scallops that were so over-seasoned that they were crunchy, and the mushroom bruschetta had woefully underseasoned mushrooms on a really salty crostini. I wanted to like it, but if you're going to present yourself like a casual upscale joint, and charge accordingly, you have to know how to use salt. Great cocktails though.
