I went to Newton's Table with a group for lunch. I ordered the beet salad, which looked quite nice (according to the description), and planned to share the Kobe beef wontons with someone else.
Well, was I surprised when I got my "salad", and I will give them credit - presentation is great at Newton's Table. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and the food is pretty. But the salad, for $10, was rather a surprise - not even one whole beet when you added up the paper-thin slices on the plate, plus the tiniest bit of frise, a few pine nuts, and one orange slice that had been further sliced up.
Suffice it to say, I was still hungry after the salad. Very hungry. Then the Kobe beef wontons came, and I bit into one. Grease went down my blouse, and I have since been unable to get the grease out of my blouse.
We ordered the gruyere cheese puffs to help make it seem like more of a meal. One person at the table got the soup, which he found inedible.
Many at the table got the pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich, and all seemed pleased with that. The lobster macaroni and cheese and noodles with curry went over well with them too - I can't eat shellfish so I was not able to partake in those.
Newton's has a lot of fish, and a lot of shellfish.
I told the waiter what happened to my blouse and showed him as well. He apologized and took my number for the manager to call me. He hasn't yet.
I can't say I am in a hurry to return to Newton's; it is just too inconsistent, and I worry about ruining more clothing.
