Oh Ramsay -- Your Restaurant is F%*#$ed

radman123 | May 30, 200802:02 AM     13

I ate at Ramsay's on Wednesday

I am going to keep it real short and simple....

Burrata mozzarella with heirloom tomatoes, cape gooseberries, basil pesto - Go to the local cheese shop get some Burrata mozzarella and a few Heirloom tomatoes dice it up and it will be the same thing. good nothing special.

Hand-dived sea scallops, cauliflower purée and sherry vinegar reduction - If you watched the last episode of Top Chef -- I think these were Spike's frozen scallops.

Monkfish with crispy chicken skin, lemon thyme consommé - Great idea for a dish OK execution. think shrimp wrapped in bacon and you kind of get the consistency of this dish.

Smoked pork belly with roasted Scottish langoustine, celeriac and apple - Belly lukewarm with a pale color opposed to a maple brown - how often do you have poor Pork Belly - not very often so this was a shocker.

Beef filet and Kobe short rib, cipollini onion, baby beets - Beef filet good / Kobe Short Rib a tastless disaster.

Artic Char - Fine - Tasted like Salmon I make from Ralphs

Additional Observations

-- Choclate Pudding was great -- would have liked to have tried more deserts
-- Since when do you see table salt shaker at a restaurant at this "level"?
-- get some more bread choices please
-- Lukewarm food
-- I guarantee portions will get bigger - no way this place can stick around with 3 little scallops.
-- I look forward to the LA Times & LA Weekly's review - this will be a test of their palate.
-- Don't even bother with the Sushi at the bar -- a whole other story.

By the time I left I think I had only 4 total BITES of food -- I'm starved

Look, I wanted to give it a rave but sorry to say that won't be happening
