Prix Fixe Lunch at Table 31

rocknroll52 | Feb 18, 2009 06:21 PM

Was at Table 31 for a business lunch today. They are offering $24 prix fixe lunch, three courses. Starters were choice of : salad, soup of the day, or calamari; entree was crispy branzino or steak; desserts creme brulee or warm chocolate cake. Portions were larger than I expected. I had the white bean soup, branzino and creme brulee. The bean soup and the branzino were good, though in retrospect I would have ordered the salad and steak. Creme brulee was great! Overall I thought the prix fixe was a great value!

One disappointment, they no longer have the lobster roll on the menu.

There were some issues with service. We had two servers for the our party of 6; they mixed up the soft drinks, and didn't know which entree was for which person. But worst was, one party was a strict vegetarian; he told the waiter he was vegetarian and asked for his salad without the bacon. It came without bacon, but still had the duck confit mixed in. For entree, he ordered the Branzino without the fish (just the veggies) but it arrived with everything. Since it was a business lunch, he did not want to complain. The server just did not seem to get it. Vegetarians take note, this place is not for you!!
