My wife and I are visiting Plae for the second time. Last year during our anniversary Sept. 2011 we dinned at Plae and it was wonderful. Our second time last night was not the same experience. Second anniversary Sept 2012, we arrived on a Sat night and were surprised that it was almost empty. We figured off season. My wife ordered the french onion soup, which was great, I ordered the Lobster bisque which tasted and looked like brown gravy! It did however have generous chunks of lobster in it. My wife ordered a chicken plate that was good and she loved it, I ordered the beef short rib and it was so rubbery if could not be chewed. It was almost like they had rewarmed and recooked it five times throughout the week because of low dinning. It was as dry as the Sahara! The waitress was really nice about it, as I was reluctant to send it back (I hate to do that!)
And no lie...as she took it back, my wife about jumped out of her seat as a cockroach crawled by her into the wall (table 45). Of course we didn't way anything as it would probably just look like we were "that unappeasable couple" and the cockroach did disappear into the wall.
Anyway they took my meal off the check. We ordered a dessert because I felt bad for sending something back even though my wife wanted to leave at that point. It was Choc pound cake, it was good.
Just very disappointed in our second visit on our anniversary. Maybe just bad because of the down season?
