Crema on 17th St. report

tsiblis | Nov 2, 2006 12:56 AM

We tried Crema tonight, which gets a good rating in the Zagat. The chips and salsa were okay, mostly because the chips were decent. The salsa was a bit innovative, not an improvement over traditional, but edible. Then the main courses came. The spareribs were inedible; even the smell was nauseating. They were worse than any airplane meal I've had. The chicken salad was almost equally terribly, a mixture of sweet with other flavors, temperatures, etc., none of which worked. We were shocked that a nice looking restaurant could be this terrible. Has anyone else had our reaction?
