Eatery is a restaurant that is in our neighborhood and we have been to a few times. We have had some good experiences and some bad ones at Eatery. We went the other weekend and i decided to write a review. The service is pretty good there and the staff seems to be having a great time. For an appetizer we shared some edamame and calamari. The calamari is amazing, it is served with mango and it goes together so well.
I wish I could say the same for our entree choices. Jon loves short ribs and orders them often. So it was no surprise to me when he ordered short ribs. The short ribs were not good. They had no flavor to them and we have had a lot of short ribs all over nyc, these were the worst ones. They seemed like they had just been boiled and some gravy was thrown on top. Even the mashed potatoes were bland. They need the recipe for Jon’s Short Ribs!
I had the Moroccan Salad and it was also bland and tasteless. I found that our meals just seemed like they had not been seasoned. I have had other salads at the eatery before and loved them. This one needs to be off the menu. Even the dressing was bland. It may be just my taste but I also do not like when you order salad with chicken and the chicken is stone cold. I like the chicken to be a little warm but this was straight out of the fridge. I will order something else next time.
The service was great and the atmosphere is fun but our food this time was not worth the money. We could have made much better entrees at home for much less. We will return to eatery again but next time we will stick to the stuff we know is good there. The steak is really good and I love the fish tacos. Have you ever been to a restaurant that you previously liked and been disappointed by the food??
