Seaport Newbies - Onda and Made Fresh Daily

financialdistrictresident | | Jan 7, 2009 02:38 PM

Last night I wandered across the street to Onda (contemporary Latin). Always on the lookout for a dining options besides Acqua and Table Tales (or leaving the neighborhood). . . Now on to the food:

I nibbled on bean dip and warm flatbread while I asked Ciril for his suggestions and sipped my wine. Lots of wine by the glass, limited wine list (reasonably priced) with Chilean and Argentine wines.

Appetizers:

*Flat bread with smoked duck, manchego cheese + porcini spread, sherry cherry. Delicious. (Thinking Rayuela now . . .)

Ceviche:

*Wild striped bass ceviche - citurs sauce, jalapenos, red onion, passion fruit sorbet - light, fresh - very good.

Salads:

*Crab & arepa salad - sweet corn arepa, jicama, papaya, organic arugula, crab and lime vinaigrette - very good.

Two glasses of wine and the 3 small plates were $48 without tax and tip. Onda might be too good for the neighborhood. A step above Salud! and a bit reminiscent of Rayuela. Might even invite my SO here.

(No delivery yet - let's hope Executive Dining or Seamless Web changes that soon.

)

Apples and oranges here: grabbed a late luch "to go" today at Made Fresh Daily. Whiter and larger but vaguely reminiscent of sorely missed DoDo (was on South and Peck Slip). I had the carrot ginger soup and curried tuna salad on whole grain toast. Very good and FRESH. Sandwiches in $7 - $9.50 range. They also had Doughnut Plant donuts and some good looking cupcakes. Luckily I passed on all things dessert-ish.

Hours 8-5 (so if you want coffee after Jack's closes it's Barbarini or maybe Financier)
