Michael's Genuine Disappointment - Sra. Martinez Saves the Night

dknyindc | May 17, 2012 08:14 AM

Sadly disappointed. Highly anticipated leg of a visit from out of town, but a big letdown...twice.

Reservation was, initially, 20 minutes late. No biggie for a packed Fri nite; so we go to Sra. Martinez for drinks, and wait. 45 minutes later, though, I check: another half hour delay. Unacceptable. Cancel. Get a call half hour later telling me my table's ready. Whatever.

Sra. Martinez immediately accommodates, without a reservation. Elegantly casual tasting menu was outstanding, with expert, friendly service to match.

We gave Michael's another try a few days later: Welcoming, professional staff. Tasteful design. Tantalizing menu...sad execution. "Al dente" , unseasoned pasta that may or may not have been heated - for 15 seconds - in a microwave. Gelatinous burrata... (to their credit, quite tasty deviled eggs)

We may have caught the establishment on an off day (well, two off days). If that's the case, though, it was enough to discourage a return visit next time we're in town.
