Even with all the warnings from earlier reviews, the extremely high prices are still a bit of shock. Paying $36 for a dozen oysters seems ordinarily excessive, in light of the fact, that most other restaurant shuck the same Oysters for about $24 a dozen. Should we believe these exact same oysters are 30% better at the Ordinary than everywhere else? OK, enough on the prices, on with the review of the meal.
Our meal consisted of major highs and a couple major lows.
Having to pay for Bread at a restaurant that is already overpriced seems a bit excessive, especially when those rolls seem to be nothing more than cocoanut flavored, cafeteria style roles. Sorry, I said enough on the prices. Let’s move on.
The wife’s Lobster bisque had a nice flavor but the texture of Puree of Seafood mystery meat was a major turn off. It is even more of a turn off when you are expecting chucks of lobster in your Lobster Bisque.
The wife’s Grilled Skipjack Tuna with Braised Tomato was well cooked. The Braised Tomato’s and sauce provided a nice spicy accompaniment to the firm meat of the Skipjack.
I ordered the New England style fish Stew. This stew is a classic potato soup with nice chucks of white fish. Over all a nice rendition of a classic New England fish stew.
I also had the Grouper with Spring Vegetables, and a Uni broth. My wife and I are both huge fans of Grouper, and this might have been the best ever. The fish was very moist on the inside, with a nice crusty sear on the out. The broth itself was indescribably delicious.
The service itself was perfect. From the time we walked in, sat at the bar waiting for our table, and during the meal itself we could not have asked for anything more
Overall with the highs in lows of the meal the restaurant is above average but not quite very good.
