I have been to Abe & Louie's three times this past winter. I have ordered their steak twice and their salmon once. Each dining experience, whether the steak or the salmon, was far and above excellent. The service impeccable and the casual while a little expensive surroundings very enjoyable.
Last night, I went to Legal's in Cambridge. Had to find a parking (no valet) space, not easy. Arrived and was seated within 10 minutes (early 6pm). Our server was excellent. Because of the chows, I ordered the chowder, but while good, not overly impressed, maybe it's me.
I ordered the encrusted salmon for my entree. It was good, but not excellent. Our server recommended this dish over the wood grilled salmon. Although it was quite good, nothing stood out. I had mashed potato, good, but nothing sensational either.
For five dollars more, I could have been at my favorite restaurant, Abe & Louie's, and enjoyed their Salmon. Perhaps it's just me....... Mcel
