An Update on Blue Orchid

March 25, 2006 at 6:00pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

The Missus, The Mother-in-Law, and I went to Blue Orchid last night. (Read my Blue Orchid review.) It was the first time I had been back since my bad experience back in early February. I’m happy to report that most of the restaurant’s service hiccups seem to have been addressed. The servers were well trained and prepared, and they looked nice in their all-black outfits. The only glaring mark against them: the servers at a nice restaurant should not call a table of customers “guys”, especially when 2/3 of them aren’t. Leave the “guys” lingo to Applebee’s.

The food was, as always, outstanding. The Missus went with her favorite, yellow curry, The Mother-in-Law opted for pad thai, and I tried the green peppercorn entree. My meal was incredible, and the women had nothing but praise for their dishes. I have eaten five different entrees in four trips to Blue Orchid and I have adored every single one. No other restaurant has ever hit five-for-five for me.

My only major complaint about last night’s experience was the temperature. We were seated near the big windows on the south end of the restaurant and the temperature was very chilly. A couple customers wore their coats throughout their meals. I’m not sure if it’s a problem with the windows, with the insulation, with the air handling, or something else, but it really should be addressed.

Overall I was very pleased with Blue Orchid’s continual growth and maturation. Assuming they keep gradually improving, I fully expect Blue Orchid to settle at or near the top of most Lincolnites’ list of great restaurants.

We’ve eaten there twice for dinner and had great experiences both times. Once was a Friday night - seated almost immediately, a group of 8. Everything came out of the kitchen on time and hot, in more ways than one. My only complaint - the rice-paper wrapped spring rolls. ECCCH. They are terrible.
