Bix

We had dinner at Bix last night, the first time we've been back there in many years. I guess one could describe the place as a "supper club", lively bar scene, live jazz, dimly lit.

Overall , it wasn't bad. Service was very good, attentive but not over realming. The food was fine, had excellent lamb, med-rare as order but the sides of lentils and carrots were very toothsome and had little flavor. Really expected more for $32. My wife had the duck and it was also tasty but again, the sides were so so. I had blossoms stuffed with crab and goat cheese as a first course, fried with an avocado dipping sauce. Good but greasy as if the oil wasn't hot enough

It was "good" but for $140 bucks before tip, I thought pretty pricey. The new places like Rue Saint Jacque, Winterland, Coco500, Luella all seem like far better deals with food that is at worst equal and probably better.

Anyone else tried Bix?? Comments?
