I went here one evening after a disappointing meal at Le Diplomate the night before. So I was willing to work hard to get something really good. I tried to get a reservation in a half dozen other places I preferred over this one, but all of them were full up for Friday night at 6:30. Finally, I settled for this place, in spite of its OK but uninspiring reviews. And when I showed up, the interior – yikes – it reminded me of a Holiday Inn dining room in Akron, Ohio. The clientele – don’t ask. And yet . . . the food here was quite good.
I had the best scallops I’d eaten in years. The Amish chicken was quality as well, and I enjoyed the meat plate. The cheese plate was boring but it had . . . my favorite goat cheese (chevrot). This place has about zero originality, and yet . . . a lot of the food tastes good. I don’t know if I can quite recommend it, and I don’t know if I’ll end up going back, but I give it a thumbs up, sort of, kind of, but I can’t deny it was much more enjoyable than the now-spoiled, overly salted Le Diplomate.
