Lineage: Thanks for being in my neighborhood

teezeetoo | Apr 19, 2014 10:38 AM

I haven't had a chance to try Row 34 which I'm sure I'd love, but I feel the need to reaffirm my fealty to the ever-pleasing Lineage which is still one of my favorite neighborhood bistros. The seafood trio with three selected wines is always so good and I consider it a great value at a bit above $50.00. When we get there early, the staff is consistently kind about serving us the oysters at our table at bar prices (a dollar an oyster for beautifully chilled and chucked Island Creeks). I find their salmon tartare consistently the best and, while I've occasionally quibbled about whether the fish is slightly overcooked for my taste, it is always impeccably fresh and beautifully garnished. I've never had anything but welcoming service and I can hear myself think and talk to my companions. When places have been so consistent over time they run the risk of being eclipsed by the "new new thing." So I am reaffirming my love of this place and my gratitude that it is so easily in my orbit.
