The scene pops the minute you walk in. It is a combination of urban, inviting, upscale yet casual and festive all at the same time.It was fairly busy when we walked in so it was quite loud which is very ok with me. For others the noise level may be a distraction.The staff was prompt, attentive and knowledgeable. Everything on the menu sounds interesting and really good. That makes it tough to choose because I want it all!! I am excited about what I am reading and about to taste.
We ordered the Ramey chardonnay at $33 for a flask. This was the least expensive wine on the night we visited. We started with the grilled maitake salad offered for $11.00. It was a delicious creative blend of lettuces, cabrales, medjool dates, marcona almonds tossed with a white truffle vinaigrette. It was so tasty that I wished I was not sharing! Next the waiter suggested the bass wrapped in crab with an assortment of veggies all resting in a flavorful curried coconut broth for $32.00. The broth and veggies were incredible. They were the star of the entree. They gave me such a flavor sensation.While the veggies took on the flavor of the broth the fish did not. I felt like the bass did not belong there. It was misplaced. The fish was moist yet lacked flavor. What was strange too is that the crab was a bit tasteless as well. My dinner guest felt the same. The second entree ordered was the buttermilk fried organic chicken resting on a butternut squash waffle with corn butter, chanterelle squash fricassée and truffle honey for $22.00. A standard menu item.The fricassee and truffle honey were heavenly. The chicken started out moist and totally absorbed the sauce. As we reached the larger thicker pieces of the chicken the meat became dry. It was over cooked. So the finish was a disappointment. Each entree was perfect in size. Not skimpy or overwhelming. Did not try desserts. They all sounded wonderful.
I struggled with giving Edison an average or above average review. I went with the average because I was expecting to be wowed due to the reputation of Jeanne and all the raving reviews in the newspaper. As you see from my review, the entrees were both lacking in some way. With that said we will return and look forward to trying other menu items.
