It's been sort of a rough round of eating for the team here, and though we found enough to like to about Old Town Social, Gemini Bistro, and Orvieto, the seven new restaurants in the listings turned us into a bunch of crankypants.
I endured one of the most infuriating meals in recent memory at Knew, the rebirth of Omar Rodriquez's Think, and I was unable to focus on the Filipino-Italian-Japanese mashup at Dolce. David Hammond found "predictable, middling" sushi at Blue Ocean and a pan-Latin mess at Havana. Julia Thiel seemed reasonably happy at the Tango Sur offshoot Folklore, and may have found the one redeeming spot at Ch'ava Cafe. Finally, La Mediterranee magically and tragically transported poor Martha Bayne to hell in a Hilton Garden Suite.
Next time: Edzo's, Belly Shack, Sprout, LM Le Restaurant, and more.
