Long time Nancy Oakes fans underwhelmed

We used to live around the corner from both Pat O'Shea's and L'avenue and dined @ both on a regular basis(we still rmember the breakfast days at L'avenue). We also followed her to Boulevard and felt great she had "made it" but mourned our loss of our neighborhood favorites. Last night we tried Prospect and were rather underwhelmed. The prices are rather stiff and the servings relatively small. Highlights were the Chilled Market Vegetables and the hand picked crab salad. The green goddess salad was rather plain . We split the Dayboat scallops which were actually overcooked. Dessert was the Meyer Lemon-Caramel tart(ok not great and rather lackluster). The Ramsey Chard was good but @ $17 a glass(and a relatively small pour at that) . We found the dining room cold.Service was good not overpowering. We will probably not go back.
