Comme Ca - good, but not as great as before

Just a brief comment on a recent trip to Comme Ca. My wife and I ordered two appetizers - butter lettuce salad and onion soup, which were both fine.

The problem was the two entrees.

Scottish salmon was tender with a nice crisp seared exterior, but it was too salty and not as buttery as the last time I tried it. The sides were problematic too - mushy polenta, and sauteed mushrooms which managed to be boring even for a mushroom fanatic.

And then the famous burger. While respectable, a burger which is clearly ordered medium should not be blood-red and oozing red-tinged liquid all over the plate. And again, the saltiness was excessive for my palate. The slaw topping is interesting, but for me doesn't rank up there with caramelized onions. While I am far from a burger conneisseur, I enjoyed my burgers more at Golden State.

So overall, my message to chef Myers is: cut down the salt, work on the sides.
