We ate Primo for the second time recently. The first time was about a year after it opened and we had, truly, one of the most memorable meals of our lives. This time we were bowled over by the creativity of the menu with options we had never heard of: rutabega soup with pear, ginger, a sea scallop, and black garlic, anyone? How about roasted oysters with a Meyer lemon cream sauce and caviar? While the food was very good, it didn't sing the way we remembered it. And the dishes weren't quite warm enough by the time they made it to the table. My other issue was of disconnected expectations. I ordered salmon paella, so I was expecting paella with salmon added to it. Instead, I got a large piece of salmon on top of some paella-like rice, but not true paella. But our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was delicious and our server could not have been more lovely and gracious. I would definitely go back again but would ask a few more questions about the menu beforehand.
