Cafe Boulud & Mesa Grill RW Lunch

gtrekker2003 | Jan 25, 2008 09:41 AM

I just went to Cafe Boulud for lunch today and it was delicious. Ordered the salad with shallot/grapefruit/orange vinaigrette, beef dish in 2 styles (very good), and meyer lemon tart which was heavenly. Very good experience, highly recommend.

Went to Mesa Grill during the week and that was so-so. They took almost half an hour just to get me my soup which was quite good, ages again to get the entree (spice rubbed chicken which I wasn't crazy about), and then I didn't have enough time to finish the dessert (vanilla crunch profiteroles). An hour and a half required just to eat lunch there. Actually, had to get my entree to go because they took so long. Now that I've seen it and dined there, no reason to go back.
