As expected, Frank Bruni awarded one star to Buttermilk Channel today, finding it…
a restaurant of real standards, noteworthy ambition and uncommon slavishness to trends. It’s laudable and predictable in equal measures. And it was packed every time I went.
Although one in three dishes widely misses its mark and the restaurant’s reach frequently exceeds its grasp, there’s the possibility of a terrific meal. There’s the probability of a pleasant one.
Among the charcuterie items, a few “are like earnest but clumsy culinary-school first attempts.” And how, exactly, would Frank know that?
No matter. Both Eater and I win $1 at even money on our hypothetical one-dollar bets.
