Guess my first clue should have been when I arrived with my wife for a 7 PM reservation and we were the only ones in the dining room.
They offer a tasting menu and also a dinner sized portion of anything on the testing menu. My wife ordered the oysters and the squab off of the testing menu. I ordered the smoked eel and a dinner sized portion of the sweetbreads.
The eel was two strips of less than two inches each for $12.00. My wife received three oysters for $12.50.
My entree, yes the dinner size portion, was two pieces of sweetbreads 2 inches square for $28.00. Not even one lobe.
My wife received a small portion of squab.The wine by the glass is also way over priced for the vineyards served.
When I complained about the portion size I was told the chef said "well, the sweetbreads are dusted with truffle powder." Give me a break. Needless to say we shan't return.Too bad Du Village left this space.
