Davio's/Game On

So had a pleasant meal at Davio's Wed. nite but something just didn't gel and the thought of fancy food and cocktails still makes me want to run screaming. I think the blood orange martini did me in, then the chicken livers which is a heavy (if tasty) dish. Gnocchi w/ buffalo mozzarella and tomato was decent, I've had better spinach salads (with portobello mushroom), and the crab cake was tasty but small. I don't think dessert is their forte here either, warm apple tarte w/ ice cream was good not great. Sat at the open kitchen bar and had friendly service, had no idea it had started pouring behind us. Two drinks, two wines (that glass of wine was a dumb move), 3 apps, a pasta and dessert came to about $95. A few things are well priced but a lot of it gets expensive. The room is still one of my favorites tho.

So being sick in general meant I couldn't taste one bite of food I ate at Game On last nite. Waste of calories. Lots of waitresses with trainees in tow, not too busy on a non Red Sox nite altho one group was having a small party there. Sat inside at the open window, didn't really check out the downstairs with the tons of TVs. Got a cheeseburger w/ fries ($10). The burger was less done than I'd orderd but once I got past the very middle, it was okay. Served with shredded lettuce like you get in a sub shop which I don't like. Fries weren't hot enough, but that's all I can tell you about impressions of the food. My friend had the duck w/ hoisin sauce pizza which he really liked, a good sized serving for $10 or 12 with WAY more duck than you normally get (i.e. Penguin Pizza). I did get his leftover slices so hopefully I'll be able to taste and enjoy that. They had a lobster roll w/ fries for $16 that I almost went for, the other sandwiches are served w/ chips. Didn't check out dinners too much since I was in a sandwich mood. Deserves another shot when I can tell what I'm eating.
