Eulogy

I visited Eulogy on Friday night, and i'm sorry to say that it was mostly disappointing.

Over half of the appetizers are pretty typical pub fare -- wings, turkey (er, "pterodactyl") wings, ribs, fried mozzerella -- which didn't interest us. Of the Belgian offerings, we wanted to try the endive gratin, but they were out of endive. We got raspberry shrimp skewers. The raspberry chili sauce was okay, though i thought it erred on the side of too-mild. The shrimp were, sadly, very overcooked, and only lukewarm.

We had the mussels dijon. We expected more of a broth; instead there was a thicker poured-over creamy sauce. However, it was tasty, and the 2 lbs of plump mussels were excellent. We didn't like the bread that came with, though...it was a rather thick italian bread that was oddly tastless. The frites were disappointing, and also more like English chips than Belgian frites.

The beer list is great...for bottled beer. Only a couple of Belgian ales on tap, though.

Overall the place also seemed a bit unfinished, too. Too much reliance upon typewritten signs taped to the walls which, i'm sorry, just looks tacky, especially when thought was obviously put into the decor. I appreciate the smoking policy of no smoking upstairs until after 10, though.

Also puzzling -- signs in the upstairs dining room on the walls apologizing for dust and announcing the soon-to-be-added high-speed internet connections. For what?

Overall, it was just okay. Seems to not yet have found its intended niche in the continum of bar--pub--restaurant.
