Review of Limbo (new place in Ladder district)

Hi fellow Chowhounders.

I was headed to the theatre with my wife and thought "what the heck, I'll try a new place!" Based on some positive reviews from other sites, I decided to check out Limbo, a bar/restaurant/jazz club that sits in the shadow of the new Ritz Carlton in Boston.

Wild space, very imaginative (though very loud). Great bread and spread. Good inexpensive wine list - had a great Pinot Noir for about $30 bucks. Cross cultural menu - all kinds of stuff, everything from asian to italian. Very tasty salads - try the capricio!

Small portions! I admit that the pricing is relatively low, but for these prices I still wanted more. The lobster risotto, for example, has a generous amount of risotto, but only one lobster claw and some small chunks of lobster meat! Also, the restaurant seems to be of secondary importance to the bar scene. As a result, you feel kind of weird eating there only. Seems like a good place to go with work friends. . .

Final Rating: B. A decent place, but there are better in the area. Price wise it's reasonable for Boston, but there are better bargains in the area (Pigalle, for example)

If anyone else has been there, I'd like to hear your opinion.
