I thought there was a thread about B2 already but I couldn’t find it so I apologize if I’m duplicating. After ready good things about this place, albeit mostly about the burger(s), I decided to give it a try.
Monday night 6pm there was only 1 other table in the place we were seating at a nice table in the dining room. We started with the cheese and meet platter, a mix and match of 5 items for $27. For meats we choose prosciutto and pork butter, 3 cheeses 2 of which were mild and similar although the names escape me, 3rd was a blu cheese.
I prefer Italian meats and cheeses more than combinations like this however everything was very good and as described.
I followed this with 6 oysters, 2 of each variety of east coast oysters they had. 4 of which were fine, 2 were dry as of previously shucked. They don’t offer a traditional cocktail sauce which irked me, although their hipster version was adaquate. The vigegar mignonette was good.
Last my daughter and I shared a clam pie. This was a big let down, bland and tasteless. Even the clams seemed to be canned chopped variety with a very neutral cheese, no garlic or real flavor at all.
Overall I was fairly under impressed with the place, even the menu itself was a bit out of my wheelhouse. The entire time I was telling myself I should just get the burger…I should have listened to myself.
