Catch

There is something really catching about Catch! For me it's naturally about the food, however, for my dinner guest, it was more about Kris Humphries sitting next to us lol. Love you she that will not be named! xo  
From start to finish it is an excellent culinary experience with impeccable service and perfect timing. They serve pretty much any type of seafood you may desire, prepared in numerous cuisines.  They started us off with warm pretzels served alongside butter that had been whipped with a grain mustard.  Really delicious!

The Dutch

The Dutch seems to be the restaurant of the moment.  As I stare around the room it is packed wall to wall with downtowners sipping on martinis eager to be seated.  Serving contemporary style American fare, it definitely has it's highs and lows.  The service is excellent as our waiter was extremely attentive, even offering to keep our food under the heat lamps as I left the table for a few minutes. However, our table was seated on the late side of the evening and our food was rushed out.  I could just hear the boys from the kitchen complaining about the staff taking late orders.  Our appetizers on the table when our entrees were sent out. The chef suggested medium rare for my duck, it definitely came out seared black and blue and completely cool in the center so basically it touched the grill for a few seconds.  It was loaded with raw pecans to the point that it was overwhelming.  I love pecans and they would have done justice to the dish if there were less of them and they could have been toasted a bit to compliment the dish better.   The wood grilled chicken was excellent!  Tender and very moist, not a big fan of chickpeas but to each his own I guess!   I do have to say that the banana cream pie was THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD!!!  Served on a ginger cookie crust, it was a definite high light!
