41 West

July 4, 2014

Pan seared sea scallops served w a vermouth cream sauce - 2

J's comment > not bad; scallops cooked well, sauce was a good pairing; quinoa and veggies were really avg though

Roasted Australian rack of lamb w mushroom risotto and red wine shallots sauce - 2

J's comment > not bad; lamb was very tender @ a medium rare, despite us asking for rare; risotto was OK, slightly pasty, mushroom flavor not too strong; sauce was a tad salty

Dungeness crab & shrimp cakes - 2

J's comment > not bad; quite meaty, still had filler, but much less than others that I've tried before; slightly dry though, you definitely need the mayo

Tomato salad w red onion and black olives - 2

J's comment > not bad; very fresh tomatoes, juicy; the zing from the garlic dressing was what really set this apart from being 'just' a salad

Complimentary bread and butter - 2

J's comment > not bad; served warm, and buns were soft, although exterior was a tad stiff; butter was unsalted

Coffee Zabalione - 2

J's comment > kinda like a frozen sorbet / ice cream; not the easiest to chip away at esp on a plate w a dull spoon; flavors were OK though, very strong coffee flavor as advertised
