Haute Dish, tonight

A very mixed bag. Expected much more for the money.

The good. The final courses we ordered: The mac and cheese, the burger, the famed tater tots and short ribs. Good stuff. [I had the short ribs and they were outstanding.]

The bad. The server could not seem to find a bottle of red in the 30s until we pointed out that there was an Argentinian Malbec for $8 a glass...could we buy that buy the bottle? [$32 a bottle.] We ended up buying four bottles. Dumb that the server tried to find us a more expensive bottle. She was -- rightfully -- shortchanged on the tip.

Overall, the server was somewhat indifferent to the whole table. Stingy on bread for six people. Had to ask for salt and pepper three times.

Our party seated next to the restrooms. The smell of coconut or palm oil from the restrooms is still in my hair. And I'm now at home.

We ordered separate checks. Server should have made 20 percent from all of us. I left 10 percent on mine. Haven't done that in this town for years.

Dining room pretty empty except for the major seating @ 8.

Good luck to the owner(s).

None of us will be going back.
