Desperate for a decent meal in Montevideo after a surfeit of steak, I warily decided to heed the enthusiastic advice of TA posters and went to lunch at Dueto. Arriving, the welcome was friendly, and the dining room was lively--this place is clearly very popular with a well-heeled crowd of local regulars. Alas, the food: A miserly salad with mayonnaise dressing and one of the weirdest, heaviest and most tasteless versions of lasagna I've ever had in my life. This meat heavy concoction with a thick layers of béchamel sauce was made in a small round wooden bowl. It was topped with very hot melted cheese, but was cold in the center, so pre- made and then reheated in a connection oven of some kind. Instead of the succulent bolognese sauce I had been craving, I got a bizarre load of coarsely chopped meal, a few wild mushrooms, and, er, um, some chopped walnuts. Wish I had somewhere in Montevideo to suggest, but as delightful as the city may be, its restaurants are just dire.
