MARCH review

mrnyc | Nov 12, 2004 02:31 AM

we were three tonight at MARCH. it was fine but nothing spectacular. we had four courses and a dessert course ($85/pp). we also got a bottle of savigny cru burgundy '00 which was ok if a bit young and thin, but hey it was my choice ($55). the amuse was a lobster mousse on cucumber in some kind of fruit sauce that was frankly not that good.

my choices were a bison carpaccio w/ quail egg starter. delicious if short on the meat. next i had a cold mushroom and greens dish. wonderful and tasty variety of shrooms. next up was john dory and parsnip. nice fish and good but unmemorable. last savory dish was braised squab in a cardomom spiced gravy reduction. nice and warming dish.

you get another amuse before dessert. this was some 'thing' that did not register in a lovely cinnamon jelly. ah well, i drank most of the wine so maybe thats why i dont recall what was in it, but the jelly (gelee?) was delish. my dessert choice was a valhrona four chocolate cake. eh, just ok at best to cloying at worst. i only ate a couple bites of it. my dining companions sorbet mix and banana cake choices were much better. we finished up with coffees and there you go.

building is adorable townhouse if you have never been by it, rooms a little bland and worn inside i thought. service was superb. lots of older folks. MARCH was nice and served its purpose well for us. dont expect creativity or fireworks and you wont leave disappointed (i fell somewhere in the middle of that i guess).
