Blech meal at Restaurant 3 tonight (Clarendon)

Mulan | Dec 31, 2007 05:00 PM

On the strength of a really good entree I had a few weeks ago, the Japanese sea bass, I dragged my husband to Restaurant 3 for New Year's Eve. Wish I hadn't.

His fried calamari was way too salty and my husband normally adds salt to everything, so you can imagine how salty it was. My fried oysters were pretty good though.

His spinach salad was also way too salty perhaps due to the salty cheese in it or the salty vinagrette?

My short ribs entree was very dry, surprising since the waiter said it was the best dish on the menu. The collard greens were good but salty. The mac and cheese was bland. My husband's filet mignon was good, the tater tot was good, but his spinach and fontina was too heavy and he again said it was salty.

I don't know if it was New Year's and the kitchen wasn't hitting its stride but I don't think we will be back any time soon.
