As other reviewers have mentioned, the food is a bit salty. OK, more than just a bit. But not so much (unless you just can't stand salt) that you can't appreciate the flavor of the sauces, which are delicious. However, you had better be ready...More

Forgot how good the food is at BLG. Three of us shared two appetizers and three mains. Love the lobster with egg. Carbonara is great too. Service was attentive but not aggressive.

I was very excited to try Bar La Grassa and was impressed by the food and our server. The other staff seemed a bit cold. My husband liked the pork and I enjoyed the eggs and lobster although there wasn't much lobster for the $20....More
