your advice done me wrong

the cod | Nov 4, 2001 12:02 AM

sorry, chowpersons, but I took your advice and ate at boulevard the other day; should have gone to rubicon (my friend is a regular there and says it is consistently excellent). the food at boulevard was decent - at best - my companion said it was like "high end cheesecake factory food". service was good, the room was a bit overwrought, and the whole place had the atmosphere of a large, well run factory. portions were huge, except for the duck confit, which was small and hardly memorable. the popularity of this place obviously speaks to a lowbrow appreciation for big, clunky plates of unexceptional food, consistent, yes, but short on elegance and finesse. and hardly innovative - tuna tartare, crab cakes, mashed potatoes. big deal. the watering trough of the herd. signed, the cod.
