Review: Spice Market

Palate | | Jul 25, 2007 01:21 PM

I wen to Spice Market last night with 3 other people for restaurant week. I should have paid attention to some of the bad reviews on CHowhound, but I didn't. The 4 of us ended up ordering off the real menu b/c the prices weren't too steep and we didn't want dessert. It ended up being 53$ a head, and we all had a cocktail, appetizer and main course. So the prices were better than I thought, and the restaurant itself was gorgeuos--very romantic. The service was mediocre, and the food was...good, but merely good. (the skate was, in fact, bad. overfried) The red curried duck I ordered as a main was prob the best, and it wasn't that amazing. Overall, my friends and I were disappointed by expereince. THe food was somewhat interesting, but not excellently prepared. You can find better for better prices in some "authentic" tiny hole. Honeslty, I din't find the fusion attempt very exciting anyhow. So I guess I can check that one off my list. I just wish I hadn't wasted a RW dinner on it. So be forewarned, if you were ever tempted to go in, just get a drink at the bar and soak up the lovely setting.
