Reagle Beagle: A Near Miss

teezeetoo | Apr 29, 201004:46 AM     4

So wanted to like this place and the Board seemed positive. Knew I didn't like the room: I've always felt claustrophic in that long narrow space and find it cold and dark. Went early with family. Service: very friendly, nice waitress, no complaints there. Bar: ok but not smashing. Had a Petite Flower (something with elderberry, lemon, etc.) that was nice but hubbie's martini was only ok and friend's Reagle Beagle cocktail was like a margarita but a bit on the sweet and bland side. Very good side of grilled asparagus and good macaroni and cheese. Ok mussels but not ones you'd put on your "top 10." (not nearly as good as either washington square tavern or fireside grill). Scallops were fine but the risotto they were served with was gummy and not at all appealing. But the big disappointment was the hamburger: the fries were ok (not great and, again, not as good as the Washington Square Tavern) and the bun was ok but the burger was greasy and tasteless, as if the meat was second-rate. I'll always try the burger first because it seems to me that's the thing a pub has to get right. This one got a D. I know there must be things to like here, but I sure wish they'd got the burger right!
