We looked forward to our visit to 1637, since we had such an excellent meal here in 2010. This time, the regular chef must have been off, or not there anymore. We started with the same items we had 2 years ago - Seafood Martini's and the crab cakes, followed by the lettuce wedge, and creamed spinach. Martini was good, but that was the highlight. Crab-cakes were terrible - nothing like what we experienced before - flat, mushy, poor spicing, and generally unappetizing. My wife had creamed spinach, and immediately recognized it as frozen spinach. The lettuce wedge was equally unappetizing, with brown spots on the surface, and a scattered presentation of tomatoes, pecans, and dressing - I ate about 1/4 of it. All this wonderfulness, plus 2 glasses of wine for $140 including tip? You must be kidding. We don't mind paying for a good meal, but this wasn't a good meal - by far.
