gang, I've got to write about this place. There's been almost no talk about it on these boards (found your brunch tip, though, Liz). any comments? recommended dishes? great/horrible experiences?

thanks!

    One word: Souffles. Especially the blood orange souffle when available!

      Gave bruch party for my husband there two years ago and had very favorable experience - good food and good service and lovely decor - a bit out of the way was the only down side - but this was two years ago

        Had one meal there. Not bad, but not memorable in any way except for the brick walls. The staff may be Sephardic and what a pity they don't delve into this area of cuisine.

          They do delve into the Sephardic thang at Passover -- they have a sephardic seder (no religion necessary, I believe).

          jim, everything people have said so far seems accurate.

          went there a couple years ago and was good but nothing memorable except for the souffles. very good service too.
