Luzia's UWS Portuguese - Blech!

chowgal | Dec 29, 2005 08:11 AM

On a total whim, Friend and I went there lat night for early dinner. (READ: old people and families with children). Glaringly bright lights. Odd, sort of creepy wait staff. Food... bread basket good, served with an herbed butter and some sort of mixture of diluted bacalhau and russian dressing. I ordered the mariscada in green sauce - seafood in bad buttery and garlic, watery sauce. overcooked seafood. Served with too moist rice and overboiled vegetables. Friend got monkfish in creole sauce - fish was nice, sauce was lightly flavored tomato base. Wine list OK - took a chance on a nice estremadura and liked it.

Deeply unsatisfying meal.
