Mesa Grill -very average meal

ak | Jul 25, 2004 01:39 PM

Went to Mesa Grill last night - it would not have been my choice - but I got taken there and I have to admit I've been curious since I have never been to any of Bobby Flays restuarants. He's got so much hype around him and he has a very good rating in Zagat.

Anyway, the meal was actually below average. I started out with the tuna and avacodo tartare which is a pretty safe order since tuna tartare is pretty easy to make and hard to mess up - but it tasted like it had no salt since it had pretty much no flavor except for a spicy sauce drizzled on the plate. I had the honey glazed salmon with black bean sauce for my entree which also seemed like a safe choice - but the black bean sauce was actually watery and the dish was also pretty lacking in flavor.

I skipped dessert and left the restauarant wondering why Mesa Grill has a 24 food rating in Zagat?
