SIMON (at the Hotel Sofitel) ... brief report

ipsedixit | Jul 18, 200604:59 PM     2

Had the chance to stop by SIMON this past weekend.

Looked over the menu and none of the entrees jumped out so the 3 of us decided to dine on appetizers alone.

The details ...

Shellfish platter: An assortment of lobster, crab legs, shrimp, clams, mussels with horseradish. It was ok, nothing spectacular, esp. at 38/person.

Crabcake: The place calls this the "colossal crabcake" for some reason, I call it a colossal mistake. Very little taste to it.

Beef tartare: Not a bad dish, esp. when paired with the horseradish creme that accompanied it.

Margherita pizza: Good crust and just the right ratio of cheese to tomatoes. One of the standouts of the night IMO.

Also ordered up a side of Tater Tots and Onion Rings. How can you mess up tater tots, right? Thankfully, the kitchen didn't. They were crunchy and just a bit sweet with a nice earthiness to them. Onion rings were good as well. But for $8 for each, quite a price to pay for comfort food ...

Table next to us had what appeared to be the lamb porterhouse and the meatloaf, looked tempting enough ... maybe next time ...
