Went to 49 West for dinner before attending a show at Ram's Head. We were advised to sit anywhere we wanted but there were only a few seats left. The first table we sat at, had numerous fruit flies on the pictures on the walls and buzzing around our faces. The waittress said she thinks they came in with a shipment of fruit. We moved to the next table near the rear door, although colder, seemed less flies. We ordered a bottle of Pinoir Rascal ($30) which was good but not sure it was $30 good. We covered our wine glasses with napkins so the flies wouldn't go in our wine. We each had the ham & pasta soup, came one size only - bowl. It was just ok, $6.50 each. I had the Crab Salad $12.25 which was very good and had a good share of crabmeat on top of the salad. My husband had the Shrimp Skewers $11.95 which were good and also came on top of a salad. They had a man playing music in the front of the restaurant which made for good background music from where we were sitting but it would have been too loud if we had to sit closer to him. Will return, overall enjoy going here.
