Salt--Baltimore

prunuspersica | Oct 6, 2006 05:48 PM

I dined at Salt for the first time this week, and on the heels of all the hype and rave reviews, I am so reluctant to say this...but I was disappointed. It was good, but not great. The lobster spring roll seemed flat, and fairly greasy. The beet salad was uninspired (especially after so recently having one at Petit Louis that was KILLER). The short ribs I had were wonderful, but the accompanying potatoes were so sweet I was looking around for...salt. The lamb stroganoff my companion had was also sorely lacking in, well, salt. And while I have an appreciation for al dente, the beautiful wide noodles in it were slightly undercooked.
I am definitely going to return, to give it another shot (maybe i just didn't try the right items), but I was curious about anyone else's experiences?
