aoc - disappointing

really disappointing meal at aoc last night. it was my 1st experience and probably last. here's what i had:

arroz negro with squid and saffron aioli
cauliflower, curry and red vinegar
lomo and two chorizo
braised pork cheeks with horseradish cream, cornmeal grits
bittersweet chocolate cake with dulce de leche, toasted cashews

while nothing was bad, i didn't find any single item particularly great. almost all dishes were overseasoned. maybe my expectations were too high? service was spotty, waitress was few and far between. i will not return.

the wine factor at aoc is definitely top notch. i had 2 glasses of red, a lobo then la mancha, while gf had flight of rose. there was also a flight of sparkling available that looked interesting.
