No. 9 Park: Elegant but tiny portions

Chocolate Mousse | Mar 11, 2006 07:51 AM

A week or two ago, I wrote in search of restaurant for a special meal. I ended up going to the cafe at No. 9 Park. While I appreciated the atmosphere and loved the food, the portions were TINY for the price. The shrimp salad appetizer was a regular portion, but the main course (seafood and noodles) was small and dwarfed by a large bowl. My $12 crepe dessert consisted of four of five quarter-sized wavers, sandwiched with marscapone, along with three teapoons full of ice cream and some fruit compote. In comparison, I had just eaten at Lumiere, and thought that the food quality was excellent, with generous portions. Anyone else had a similar experience at No. 9 Park? Is the dining room (versus the cafe) any different?
