Sona- massive dissapointment

russkar | Jun 7, 2003 12:58 PM

We've waited months to finally try this new restaurant on La Ciengia. I've had at least 10 e-mails from friends and Prof Restaurant reviewers telling me how it's almost French Laundry. I should have known when a few negative reports started showing up on CH a few months ago that all was not well. Last week I went with a group of foodies and we all ordered the NINE course(95-) (Titantic, not size, but disaster) tasting menu. Besides tiny courses(one tiny sliver of Albacore?) the sauces didn't blend or mix well, the filet was chewy, deserts only OK. We all left starving and somewhat dissapointed fourteen hundred dollars later. Wine list is very weak also. I spent most of yesterday calling my friends that couldn't attend dinner last week to tell them how LUCKY they were,they missed it.
