Review: The Last Supper Club

tara | Jun 4, 2003 06:02 PM

Last Saturday, my girlfriend J. and I had the pleasure of dining at The Last Supper Club for the first time. It's run by the same people who own Luna Park and has been open for several months. Business seems to be hopping; we were glad we'd made reservations, as the wait was around an hour when we arrived.

J. and I both started with mojitos, which are also quite popular at Luna Park and are a tasty, refreshing way to start the meal. For appetizers, I had the tuna tartare, and J. had the bruschetta with ricotta and green vegetables (fava beans and I forget what else in a yummy dressing). Much as I love the tuna poke at Luna Park, I enjoyed the tuna tartare, which had an Italian slant and included chopped olive, tomato, and basil. The accompanying corn chip-like "scoopers" for the tartare were thick and crunchy, if a bit too numerous. J. gobbled up her bruschette, the toppings of which were light and fresh-tasting.

As an entree, I had the gnocchi with veal ragu, and J. had the grilled chicken. The gnocchi were, quite simply, out of this world. The sauce was rich and sumptuous, with a pleasing wine-iness. A bit too large, the gnocchi themselves were nevertheless soft and chewy, just the right consistency. Mmm! J. enjoyed her grilled chicken, which came with a bread salad. We also ordered a side of the broccoli rabe, which was cooked to perfection -- not too raw, not too done -- with garlic and chili pepper. And alas, we had to skip dessert, as we were too full to eat anything more.

I'd read with slight trepidation the user reviews on Citysearch that complained about the service (and the food), but there were no problems for us. Our waiter was attentive and polite.

All in all, thumbs up!
