92 - Mediocre Food in Carnegie Hill

Lizzie | Jun 21, 2001 03:41 PM

Went to (relatively) new restaurant on 92nd and Madison last night; next to Sarabeth's, replaced Busby's. Very crowded with typical Carnegie Hill crowd. The service was great but the food was very disappointing. Boyfriend had oysters and pepper seared tuna - tuna was, at $28, most expensive thing on the menu. It was dry and flavorless; even the pieces that were nice and rare in the middle weren't moist! I had an iceburg/tomato/blue cheese/bacon salad, which was nice but didn't have a whole lot of flavor. Could have used LOTS more blue cheese and bacon. Although the tomatoes were surprisingly good. Then poached salmon with horseradish sauce, dill, cucumbers, and yogurt. Salmon was mediocre - not offensive, not great. Horseradish sauce was almost nonexsistent.

On the plus sides: butterscotch pudding was delicious, bottle of very nice Sauvignon Blanc was $21. Not enough to rescue the meal, though.
