Dinner at Ducasse last night pretty disappointing overall....
Sea Scallops with Osetra caviar with watercress vichyssoise
Very tasty(but a 40 dollar supplement???)
husband had brocoletti ravioli with frog legs which was delicious
Second Round of Apps
Roasted maine lobster tough and tasted like it was marinated in ketchup
Seared halibut plain and boring
Entrees nothing to speak of at all
Boneless sqauab with vegetables nondescript and ribeye chewy with an awful (and cold) mushroom sauce
Desserts were also nondescript and average. Takes about 20 minutes to get a check as they bring out sweet after sweet after sweet.
The service is overall pretty amazing (as was french bottle of burgundy) and it does feel like you are part of something special but average food is just not acceptable at a dinner two to three times that of Daniel, Jean Georges and many others.
Place was nearly empty at 7 and about half full when we left at 9:45. Crowd was a mix of out of towners (guy on his cell phone yelling half the time), a few french folk, a few native new yorkers (us) and John Walsh of Americas Most Wanted.
Dunno how this place makes it..
