Bar Crudo – I really was expecting something much better

We stopped for a drink and just to try the signature dish – the crudo.  They were very nice about accommodating us at the bar, where we could watch them shuck oysters and prepare the dishes.  Pictured was the house variety; there were three of us and they offered a combo of 3 pieces each.  It took us 4 tries to find a bottle of European white wine from the list that they had in stock.  Finally went with an obscure Italian varietal that was just ok at $45. Pictured below are the salmon, scallop, tombu tuna, and I think a kompachi.  As we tasted them, they went from ok to not so great.  The sauces overpowered the fish, the fish not that impressive.  It was also sliced unevenly. Not pictured was the ono, which we got ala carte.  I tasted it and the fish was actually bad. My friends were grateful I was able to save them from the yuckiness.
