For some reason we ended up at Avenue in Pier Village for happy hour yesterday. Must have been the nice weather and the constant “I want to see the beach” whining. I never learn.
Even at half price, the only thing on the happy hour menu worth eating is the teeny lobster rolls. The fish tacos were lacking in any kind of flavor - just a piece of fish on a tortilla with no sauce of any kind. The sliders were plain and boring and underspiced and, of course, labeled as “kobe”, the pissaladiere had enough onions, but was lacking in both anchovy and olive so ended up way too sweet with no balance.
Add in the fact that you are not allowed to order any of this and sit outside and that Luke’s Lobster is now open in Pier Village and you end up with no reason to be at Avenue. Still kicking myself.
