First of all, sorry to write complaints two times in a row. I am not the kind of person who nags about the food all the time. When I dine out, I try to enjoy it myself, act gently, give my servers nice smile, and ignore minor mistakes.
That said, I had lunch at Marea today.
Since it hardly changes the menu, it was my first visit after 3 to 4 months.
Assortment of three crudos was great as usual.
Tagliatelle with white truffles.... Well, I now Marea is one of the places for expense accounts and I fully understand they charge really a lot. But still, they charge $149 per portion (or a supplement of $129 for prix fixe) and they were so~~~ skimpy with the white truffles! (first photo)
Especially compared to tagliatelle I had at The NoMad a couple weeks ago for $120, which practically covered the plate!! (second photo)
And tagliatelle itself was too greasy with too much olive oil that oil was dripping when I was eating it.... (third photo)
I used to like Marea when it just opened.
Well... I have just crossed out another restaurant from my regular go to list. Sad....
