Going Italian with buddies @ Marini's on 57

Thank you for the birthday treat.
(Yeah, my birthday celebrations start early......its tough to coordinate 3 persons calendar)

So here's my verdict of Marini's - not quite worth the $
The atmosphere was good (except for the constant flash lights), service was not that great and as for food, I believe that there are better places to go.

Here's a run up of what we tried:

Pan Seared Foie Gras with Caramelised Apple (The usual dish)

120 days Black Angus Beef - Somehow its pretty bland and no beefy taste! (Normally Black Angus has a nice beefy taste to it - which is what I like)

Lamb Shank - The sauce was not sufficient but Potato Truffles was not bad
Tagliolini (Home made) with fresh crab (cream sauce) - I thought the texture of the pasta was a bit too soft....

Cooked Cream with Vanilla - I have to try something vanilla :) but this did not turn out too well.

This was a interesting dessert - the Marini's Picolezze - Tiramisu on Almond Crust, Baba Au Rum (little cupcakes infused with rum), Creme Brulee and Macaroons - Actually more "French" than "Italian"
