Baker Street Bistro

hope | Oct 10, 2003 09:08 PM

had a late dinner at Baker St Bistro the other night w/a friend and neither of us were starved so we decided to just split several appetizers. here's what we had:

1) Frisee salad with duck - a huge massive pile of frissee; all elements were nice but not at all blended together (eg: frisee was not at all warmed by the duck or dressing)

2) salmon (house cured, i think) with a cucumber yogurt salad. v. small portion of salmon which was ok for us that night.

3) mussels in provencal sauce - competantly done but nothing incredibly special. very very buttery sauce.

half bottle of cote de rhone (guigal)

the bill came to $55 with tip. It was a pleasant enough meal (my friend was pickier about the food and didn't think it was all that great) but I walked away a bit disappointed as I really wanted to love the place more.

I know this place is much loved so i am wondering if there are certain food items that I really should try next time (I know the $14 or so prix fixe is popular)

service was competant and totally friendly -
