$50 ill-spent.
Two appetizers:
Manilla clams came luke warm and rubbery.
Tuna mellange was mostly potatoes.
Only the wine was worth imbibing and it was served after the plates had already arrived at the table.
The tab came to $50.
I can afford $50, but not for a culinary insult.
This will go down in my foodie book of life as one of the worst experiences in a restaurant that is supposed to have a good rep.
I'd rather eat the real A16's italian asphalt than go back to that restaurant.
