One if By Land TIBS...

Celebrated my 30th birthday there last week. Not my first choice, but it was a surprise.
The food was okay not great and for those prices the food should be great. We had the tasting menu. Everything was very salty (and I like salt). Dessert was a dissapointment....:(
The highlight of the meal was the lobster medallion served over a herbed risotto and a cauliflower puree, the squab in some sort of reduction sauce was toe-curling good. It was served with foie gras that was too small, but delicious anyway. But the time my rack of lamb was served and my fiance's famous beef wellington, I think we were too stuffed to enjoy it.
If you are thinking of going ask to be seated downstairs. I thought upstairs was dull.
We started off the evening at Gramercy Tavern for cheese and martinis. As always it was great. I was not crazy about the basil martini, but my fiance liked it. It smelled like a pizza. They make a good dirty martini though. Kind of wish we had dinner there.
Oh well, it was a wondeful birthday anyway.
