24hr brined breast and leg roasted in pata negra "bellota" fat with a lemon preserve-english-pea-carrot-leek risotto and a forvm agriculce spanish vinegar reduction
Lovely Place!!! This is my first review and first 5 star review and it is worth it. My lady and I went here for a dinner. We started with da Seafood Gumbo~! as recommended! The taste was just beautiful. Actually, we were not that hungry the time we visited. Then, this very slightly spicy taste of Gumbo Sauce brought our tastes back! Then, we ate our best roasted fresh duck...yummy! I cannot think of any other restaurants that can cook a duck better than here. Just love it and forced me to finish it even after I was full. The Scallops of the Sea was good too.
I really do appreciate waiter's services too. Gumbo was not on the menu for the day but upon my request, he personally made it for us. :)
Guys, I really do recommend this place!
Don't waste your money dining here! 2.5-3 stars but rounding down since our server was a little abrasive at times, and also not very knowledgeable about the liquor. My coworkers at my last company always talked about The Basin, so I've had it bookmarked for a while and was finally able to dine there a few weeks ago with some friends. I was able to make reservations easily for a Friday night a week in advance, and we were sat upon arrival. Initially, I was surprised to see the restaurant only three quarters full at 8pm, but after dining there, I'm actually surprised they still have so many customers. We ordered:
-Fresh Made Burrata (In House Made Mozzarella & Sheeps Milk Ricotta, Olive Oil, Maldon Salt, $12, yelp.com/biz_photos/the-…): Ok. Their version of burrata had a really thick skin, and it wasn't as gooey or flavorful as I'm used to. Skip.
-Special of the Day: Capellini w/Heirloom Tomatoes, Manchego, Mozzarella (yelp.com/biz_photos/the-…): Eh. The capellini seemed overcooked since they were really soft, and almost gummy in texture. This dish was also on the bland side- skip.
-Braised Summer Pork (Slow Braised Pork Rump in White Wine, Honey, Thyme, w/Salad of Favas, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Spanish Chardonnay Vinaigrette, $28): Ok, but the pork was overcooked. I wouldn't order this again.
-Seared Halibut Served w/Medley of Vegetables (yelp.com/biz_photos/the-…): Yuck. Half of the fish was completely overcooked and dry, and the other half was cooked medium well. I thought it was on the bland side, and didn't like the vegetables they used, although my friends liked it. Skip.
-Roasted Fresh Duck (24 Hour Brined Breast & Leg Roasted in "Bellota" Fat, w/Lemon Preserve, English Pea, Carrot, Leek Risotto, Agriculce Spanish Vinegar Reduction, $34, yelp.com/biz_photos/the-…): Yum! This was the only dish I actually really enjoyed, and would highly recommended. The duck was flavorful and cooked to perfection since the meat fell off the bones. However, the risotto was just so so, and the lemon perserve was way too strong and overpowered the other flavors.
-Huff & Puff (Puff Pastry Served w/Vanilla Ice Cream, Sliced Bananas, Chocolate Drizzle, $10, yelp.com/biz_photos/the-…): Ok, but nothing special. Definitely not worth $10- skip!
For over $50/person, the food at The Basin wasn't worth it. I'd rather pay more to dine at The Plumed Horse, or one of the other smaller restaurants along this street. I'm actually really disappointed in the quality of food from The Basin, and the sub-par service. There's no excuse for bland or overcooked proteins with these prices. This may have been a nice restaurant a decade ago, but they need to do some remodeling to modernize. In any case, I won't be back to dine here again. Parking can be tough in this area, but they do have public lots available behind Big Basin Way.
I should have stopped at a glass of wine and the "taste of spain". But I won't complain with the rest of the food we enjoyed last weekend: Pata Negra Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, Organic Beet Salad, Roasted Fresh Duck, Grilled Skirt Steak and Young Chicken, Molten Chocolate Bomb & Steven Vu's fresh made original ice cream flavors (infused with Elderberry syrup!). Brought our two kids and our waiter was quite accommodating keeping their dishes simple. This was a little pre-celebratory dinner for the upcoming month and what it ends..
