We were eager to try the reopened restaurant at the Casa del Zorro after its long absence. Unfortunately, the meal was a disappointment; the wine list a disaster. We were asked to wait ten minutes on arrival (we were on time), even though there were many empty tables in the dining room. The meal was someone's impression of "fine dining." The starter salads (Kit Fox) were ordinary. The mains were acceptable, but preparing a steak medium-rare is not exactly a challenge. The sides were dreary: tasteless fingerling potatoes and crunchy steamed vegetables--not an herb or seasoning in sight. At the top of the wine list, "wine" is described as an "adjective." (Interesting.) And Columbia Crest wines at a restaurant that claims to be top quality? I ordered a glass of red (not Columbia Crest) that was nearly undrinkable. There were no Malbecs, no Italian reds, and precious few quality California wines. We chose to pass on the dessert. Our memory of the old Casa Del Zorro was stuffiness and overpriced, boring menus. At least the new restaurant is less stuffy.
