J's Restaurant and Bar

Ate tonight [yes another birthday celebration] at J's and had a good meal. The place was mobbed and the noise level was quite high with several tables going at it full decibel. The Mussels app [$15] was very tasty but the bottom of the bowl with all the saucy goodness was a mass of cracked shells. The Iceburg [sic] Wedge [$6] was good and the gorgonzola vinaigrette dressing had just the right amount of creaminess. My entrée of Chicken Riggies [house specialty @$16] was a little underwhelming [couldn't find the pesto] so next time I will have the Chicken Parmigiana [$16] which was excellent. The other entrée was Cacio é Pepe [$15], an interesting blend of bucatini pasta and parmesan cheese. Didn't look like much but was deemed very good [cracked black pepper got lost somewhere].

blognote: waiter was not the best but the service there is oft times lacking and he couldn't find a wine glass for my pinot grigio for a good long time.
