FoodBar Non-Review

Harlan Messinger | Mar 24, 2002 07:03 PM

We sat down at a table in FoodBar this evening, at the corner of 17th and R in DC. The place is spare and pleasant but not any way elegant. It was also chilly.

The linguine with tomato sauce is $12.95. There's no indication that anything comes with it. Spaghetti and meatballs go for $15.95. These aren't even just the dinner prices.

I was shocked. I was also confused because among the entrees, the meatloaf was priced *lower* than the linguine, and the chicken breast about the same. I reckoned that either the pasta had to be spectacular or the entrees had to be mediocre. Since we had no advance word on the quality we could expect, we decided it wasn't worth the risk to be pioneers in this place, and we walked out and got good food and good value down the block at Annie's.

Anyone here know anything about quality, portion size and value at FoodBar?
