Bullet Points Bauer flames the triangle-priced menu at TBD with a list of his own, citing its location, efficiency, and creativity in design as some of its highlights. Too bad the food isn't as consistent: "The combinations at times don't work, and for every two good dishes there's one that should be 86ed," like the "tough, bitter" greens with beef tartare and Asian pear and the "excessively high-priced" wine list. Still, there are winning dishes, like "compelling" clams in cabbage dashi and "on-target" arepas. "It feels a little like the awkward child on the playground who tries to do everything to be the flames on the grill, TBD seems slightly out of control." 2.5 stars. [Chron]
