China Grill: Diverse Restaurant Week Menu Disappoints

January 22, 2008

Upon graduation from college in upstate New York over 2 years ago, NYC Food Guy jumped head first into the downstate food scene as soon as I returned home. When my first Winter restaurant week rolled around I was pretty disappointed to find so many boring menus from so many great places. China Grill, however, offered a diverse family style menu that sounded promising. The meal turned out to be pretty awesome. For the requisite $35 per person we feasted. Two years later, I decided to hit China Grill again, for lunch this time. Unfortunately, the food, full of potential, fell flat.
