Re: “RESTAURANT REVIEW: A Culinary Art Company

When I read the CP review and had to try it. This place is tiny. Three or four big booths along one wall were really cool, the tables with fish tanks below the glass top, dig it. After being seated, we were into a bottle of wine in about five minutes. Nice. Service was prompt and courteous. We ordered four dishes right off the rip. Tomato salad, sea bass, a charcuterie plate, and lamb chops. The smoked tomato and mozzarella salad with fried eggplant was a tasty start. My companion wasn't hip to the balsamic "gelee" that accompanied it, but I thought it was interesting. Next we had the sea bass. It was cooked for about ten seconds too long, but it was still good. It came with some ingredients that I thought were going to be very contradictory, but turned out to really work well with one another. Olives, cantaloupe, onions, and I think some truffle oil, with a balsamic sauce. It was cool. Next came lamb chops which were cooked perfectly, but lacked salt. I love gramalata, which was served with the lamb, but the amount of it was a little excessive and it needed some juiciness (olive oil?). There was another sauce on the plate that was kinda bland, hence the fact that I don't remember what it was. The baked brie and apples that came with it could have used some seasoning too. While eating the lamb, we decided to put in an order for some prawns. They came out fairly quickly and were HUGE!. This plate was ordered for my date who wasn't really into the lamb chops. I only had one bite but it was very good. The tempura batter was thin and crispy. If i remember correctly, they were served with a mustard sauce. The last plate for the evening was a charcuterie "slate". It was such a pretty assortment of forcemeats. I was not really into it though. I had never had a terrine with frog legs in it until 2-09-07. Is that considered rustic? peasant food? pleasant food? Never forget. The sardines were good though. I might have found the whole dish to be more desirable if had come at an earlier part of the meal. We didn't have any desert, but made it through a couple of bottles of wine. So I had that going for me, which was nice. On the whole, we both had a great time. It's always fun to go somewhere new and try new things. Would I go back? Yeah, I would. Did I mention that they have fish tanks under the table top glass? Sweet....
