Went to Dinner at Beacon last night. What a mess that place is! I will say however, the service was very friendly and nice.
The miso cod was inediable - had to send it back because it was so salty to the point of bitterness. The texture was mushy and it appeared unappetizing. Tried the grilled chicken w/green papaya salad. A little better in that it was tasteless as opposed to bad-tasting. The green papaya salad was also flavorless, pale and wet - yuck! My friend had a pad thai which was fine - which I ended up nibbling on. We also started with the california roll and vegetable spring rolls. Again flavorless. I had get better california roll at a supermarket asian section. Thank god I enjoyed my wine and made it through the dinner.
By the way, the acoustics are indeed terrible (other hounds have compalined). We were sat in the back and it was loud beyond belief! Had to move to the quiet bar area where we ate.
Would be interested in hearing other peoples' experience at Beacon.
