Disappointment at Lou on Vine

The first dish to come out was burrata, speck, arugula, and candied blood orange, for $12. It consisted of a mound of burrata topped with arugula, blood orange slices with its sauce, and TWO SHAVINGS of speck. The speck's flavor was ruined by the blood orange juice that it was swimming in, giving it a sickeningly sweet taste--a waste of a dish.

The warm farro salad, with pea tendrils, hazelnuts, winter squash, and dried cranberries also had an annoying sweet note.

Otherwise, service was fine, but since I can't recommend the food, and the bar only had three stools last night, I can't find a reason to ever go back.
