Pretty sure I did nothing of the sort. Hell I wasn't even the first person to say you ordered poorly
No you did not, but to just say I ordered poorly pissed me off. The way I ordered was more a product of the night's menu. There really wasn't that great of a selection. In my opinion of course.
I just don't think people getting on my food selection have a case here, because they were not dinning there that night. Just like I can't say the place is overrated based on one meal there. Next time I hope to do the 7 course blind tasting to really see what the chef can do.
Look, it wasn't a terrible meal, it was just a forgettable one, and a let down to what I was expecting. My order of the fish did not help the wow factor, but 3 of the 5 plates we ordered just weren't very good. Too much salt, the overpowering sauce, and the "it could be any fried food sweetbreads" are not a product of my ordering.
At places like this I do like to go app heavy, and either split or skip the entree all together. So I'll concede that I did not give this place a high percentage to live up to my high expectations, but it would have fell short regardless.
The dessert again was great. I really was amazed at how the tastes and textures came together. It is just hard for me to go back so quickly when I want to hit places I haven't been in a while, and others that I still want to try.
I'll chalk this one up to Coquette having a bad night, and my experience is in the minority.
