Graham Elliot

After delaying a visit, I finally checked out Graham Elliot this weekend...and was pretty let down.

Overall, the food was forgettable, the place mediocre and the final tab higher than I thought at $185 with tax and tip for two.

At our table we had a couple of great cocktails, the foi gras rice krispie appetizer, the buffalo chicken appetizer, the pork belly, halibut, molton carrot cake and pumpkin creme brulee.

The stand out was the pork belly with root beer sauce on it that was really wonderful. The buffalo chicken was one chicken piece that tasted like one you would get a high end bar. The foi appetizer was unique but tasted like a dessert with almost no foie gras flavor when all elements were combined. halibut was boring.

I was SO excited about seeing this place open up and now don't think I will even head back. I guess they all can't be winners.
