Why no rabbit or bison? Dislike the taste, allergy, political statement, something else?

They're just fairly unusual. Most people would say stuff like "no shellfish" or "no flightless birds".

Not a rabbit fan and actually hadn't had buffalo before. Wasn't in the mood to be adventurous. Now I'm a convert.


A friend of mine works at "The Lobby" restaurant in the Peninsula; I plan on forwarding this article to him. I'm surprised at how clumsy the service was as I have eaten at Avenues before and it was top-notch. I'm sure he'll be interested to know that someone had that difficult of a time making something as simple as a reservation.

Although I agree with you in that some of what happened is not excusable, you are clearly too nitpicky. The wine thing you complained about is a complete joke - 99% of the population (yes, even the ones that eat at fine restaurants such as Avenues) are clueless about wine. Most of the time the other 1% realize that they are in a dedicated establishment and are fine with a sommelier's wine pairings.

You still gave a fair review. I was in the same boat regarding the bison when I ate there. It was a pleasant surprise. You should have tried the squab, though (if it was present on the menu). You would have been impressed with that as well.

Overall, I give your review a B.


Ha they thought you were a wine noob!

Know what? That was eerily like something a beginning rock 'journalist' would write - just "I had soooooooooooo many problems getting my free tickets and backstage passes!" for "They lost my reservations - twice!" Trust me on this, pal. In both cases, THE READERS DON'T CARE. No, not even a little. What a pile of crap.
