THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Dome Restaurant Review: Old-timers will remember the location as being that of a Greenwich institution, Bob Forces Towne House. In later years, it was home to Greenstreets, and then the renowned Bertrands. When Bertrands closed, Dome opened in the locale which many claim is the most dramatic restaurant setting prior to the creation of LeCirque 2000, with its vaulted arched ceilings, multi-level dining rooms, and cozy bar. Unfortunately, while an exceptional gustatory experience is possible, too often its not probable. More importantly, this restaurant, which has the physical capability to be among the areas finest,. suffers from poor housekeeping, a high noise level as the evening wears on, and somewhat garish artwork. Upon entering, regardless of the hour, theres the lingering stench of stale beer and smoke. The floor is unpainted concrete. The artfully sculptured walls with their ornate carvings are now covered with murals from who knows what school of art. As for the food, it ranges from the spectacular to inedible, often at the same table. Call it spotty, but when you get lucky, you can get an outstanding meal, the only problem being satisfaction is like the roll of the dice. However, for many, Dome has an always redeeming feature, and that is its bar which is jam-packed every night of the week with those who want to be seen making the in Greenwich scene.
