X/O


OK, this is my last restaurant for a while. I was at a few this weekend. Oh wait, I am lying, I have one more to do.

Anyway, X/O, is the newest Boystown restaurant to open up. I had been there for the overpriced drinks in the back bar, and have to admit I liked it. The design, the darkness, all of that was lovely. And there seemed to be a fairly mixed crowd, or at least some girls back there from the hood. So, I tried their dinner on Friday night. And I was really let down.

They have a rock shrimp appetizer that was full of bland boring noodles and shrimp bits. They have an ahi tuna appetizer that tasted chewey and salty. The Jumbo Sea Scallops were good, cooked well, but the pumpkin dumpling underneat were a little too soggy, despite their tasty filling.

Service was a bit spotty, we got an apology from our server because two busers called off, but the food just wasn't worth it. But, I will come back for drinks in the future, and maybe give another appetizer or two a whirl.

If you wanna eat good in the boystown hood, head to Jack's. Still the best meal I have had there, I think.

Grade: C
