La Cachette

Stan | Aug 13, 200404:46 PM

Inspired by the well-written review of La Cachette here recently, I went there for lunch. It wasn't very good. I got the rack of lamb. Mini-baguettes were hot but not at all special. A salad was good with some sharp greens. The lamb was only slightly flavorful, as was the sauce that came with it. There was a ramekin of some kind of creamed corn, which tasted like ... corn. Finally there were a few small raviolis with mint inside, which were an interesting break from the much-of-a-muchness of the rest of the food. Overall, at $33 the flavor-to-dollars ratio was at least an order of magnitude inferior to the best places in Koreatown. I suppose that there are some kinds of business lunches that you can't have in Koreatown, but based just on this one lunch I can't imagine why you'd eat here otherwise. I don't doubt that our colleague had an excellent tasting menu though.
