Has anybody been here recently? I just walked in after a long, long void and was asked by the chef if I had dined there in the last year. When I said, "no", he gleefully told me that it was a brand new restaurant from what it had been. He went on to tell me that I ought to 'get it while it is hot'because a year from now it will be too difficult to get in and the prices will be far less affordable. Then, he told me that was a new addition to the restaurant and that he worked at Daniel and The Box Tree. So, now I am intrigued, despite a menu that is dominated by good old comfort food (which is fine though strange considering his boasting). Anybody???

    Did he say in what capacity he worked at Daniel and the Box Tree?! I haven't been to YWI for ages and the one dinner I had was pretty dull. But now I'm intrigued too. I guess stranger changes have occurred. I'm not feeling in an adventurous mood this week, so here's hoping someone has been recently to illuminate further.

      no mention of what capacity in which he drew his credentials from!
