I went to Aquitaine for dinner last night and was disappointed. My husband had been there once for lunch and loved it that one time, but after this dinner it just felt like a badly spent $100.
- boring, under-dressed salad with tiny bit of goat cheese in it
- Duck that was fine, with actually tasty sides of parsnip puree and parsley salad
- decent, but boring chocolate mousse (no choice of dessert).
So before I try to get a reservation for Rialto next week, do restaurants give you what you pay for on the cheapo restaurant week menu or is it always like that at Aquitaine?
