    you GOT to be kidding me. has anyone ate the pastas at vetri? there is nothing else like it. for lacroix to beat out vetri is an insult…

  • Leastimportantperson

    This just proves the people who vote on FB are clueless
    It’s like the yelp “top restaurant list” that came out last month
    Some nice comments by some but otherwise A waste of time and effort
    My last meal at lacroix was average at best
    Service was great and dessert out of this world other than that, just so-so
    The room also lacks energy
    It’s mostly rittenhouse retreads from the mid 80′s and 90′s trying to force a good time
    Is David haselhoff on knight rider tonite?

    i think its funny that ppl are so obsessed with vetri.. i’m kinda offended that i’m asked to pay so much for ” rustic elegance” at lacroix you get a meal that was thought out not just tossed on a plate

  • LP

    yes the pastas at vetri are wonderful- i wont say thats not true

    This is infuriating. Lacroix was a supreme disappointment. After all the talk about how fantastic Lacroix was supposed to be, the service was absurd, the food forgettable and the evening was something I’d rather put behind me. Vetri is hands down the best restaurant in the city. Food. Service. Atmosphere. I have never had a more perfect meal.
