Bar Verde {More Matthew Kenney}

Bar Verde {More Matthew Kenney}

These nachos from Matthew Kenney’s new Latin place Bar Verde are spectacular: Butternut Queso. Black Beans. Pico De Gallo. Cashew Crema. Guacamole. Jalapeno. Radish.

But we were underwhelmed by our other choices. But more so because the noise level of the space, the abrupt and slightly awkward service within the noise level of the space, the overall value of the dishes, and our high expectations. These are my Truffle Potato Flautas: Huitlacoche. Avocado. Marinated Kale.  They needed something more. 

My gal’s Tempura Avocado tacos with: Lime Crema. Shredded Cabbage. Pickled Chili.  Texture was off. Price was too high. $14 or so?

A VERY overpriced dessert, especially considering they were slightly uncooked and the chocolate sauce was congealed. 

I love you, Matthew Kenney, but I’m going to let this place work out some kinks before I return.
