How could this historic, prime location deliver such mediocre food? I've asked myself this every time I've tried it. On this, my third visit, I was with a friend. We ordered a calamari appetizer that was too thickly cut, weirdly breaded, under-cooked (icky to bite through) and served on wilted (as in old) lettuce. With this came sliced baguette that had obviously been cut hours before - some slices were hard and some soft, but none were the quality of baguette you'd expect to find in a high-priced bistro (as in crunchy crust and distinct inner texture and aroma). For our main course, we ordered muscles that were prepared with flat-tasting ground sausage cooked in a thin, flavorless tomato broth. Half of the muscles were shrunk by being over-cooked, the other half were plump as they should be, but some of the shells were empty and one was completely closed. Really - they don't check these things before serving? We also ordered a Caesar salad that was haphazardly dressed (some leaves bare, some overdone). It was a Saturday night and the place was almost empty. Red flag, to be sure. What a shame.
