disappointing meal at Chestnut

mdog | Jan 2, 2007 04:27 PM

My wife and I decided to have a nice early dinner on new year's eve and after reading lots of raves here- decided on Chestnut. We both got the potato leek soup, and she ordered the Hangar Steak and I had the Pumpkin Ravioli. We also ordered a bottle of Shiraz which was good
The soup was BLAND. Not just a little bit, but old age home bland. The leeks were good, but when we each had some soup without them, it just wasn't good. My wife's steak came out ice cold and was over salted. The only high point was my ravioli which was quite tasty, but nothing I couldn't get as good if not better at Noodle Pudding for much cheaper.

Did we just get the place on an off night? The food was so uneven, I can't see myself giving the place the place another shot. I would like to think that I can spend over $100 in brooklyn, and actually get what I pay for. Please tell me it was just an off night...
