Is Eastern Standard's Food Suffering?

StriperGuy | Nov 11, 2009 06:03 AM

Hit ES on Monday. My DC had gnocci with butternut squash and mushrooms and I had a plate of fried calamari.

We also had sides of spinach and brussels sprouts.

The gnocci was eh, barely any squash, not much flava. Passable, but a totally anonymous dish that could just as readily been served at Olive Garden (ouch).

The fry job on the calamari was lousy. Soggy uncrisp calamari is a no go. Barely edible.

The veggie sides were fine, but not at all noteworthy.

I'll hit it for cocktails, but for now I'll take a pass on the food.
