Repeatable: No. Visits: 2
The grande dame of nifty neighborhood restaurants with a focus on locally sourced ingredients was way ahead of the curve when chef-owner Bruce Naftaly opened it to critical raves more than a decade and a half ago. Alas, our most recent visit to Le Gourmand (November 2008) was an extremely disappointing experience. Can someone please let the kitchen know that there is such as thing as too much butter and sherry? And that sky-high prices may fool some but not all folks into believing their food is good when, in fact, it is simply adequate. At $42 an entree, “adequate” turns into highway robbery.
