Based on this review, we went to CURE last night. I, too, am cured. Cured, that is, of ever having to go back there. Started off with the Camembert cheese with fingerling potatoes. Was shocked when biting into the potato to find it was stone cold. Cheese would not spread nicely on it. Next moved to the rabbit and mushroom pate you raved about. I always think of pate as something to spread on something else. This was a cold solid slice that never softened up and could not be spread at all. It also lacked any discernible flavor. The bread, mustard and pickles far outshone the pate. Then we indulged in the branzini. I had never had this fish but I found it bland and dry. The small clump of greens on top again outshone the feature. We had a cauliflower gratin which was ok except in the way the pieces were cut which made spooning and eating difficult. All in all the bread and the greens stole the show.
On the positive side the ambiance is very nice albeit a little noisy. The wine was great. And the waitstaff were superior.
The biggest downer was the very high price we had to pay for this very unmemorable dinner. So were we at the same restaurant Mr. Leach?
