I ate here once when it first opened and it was excellent. I was thinkning of going back, but as you know, some places tend to go downhill after some time. Has this place gone downhill or is it still doing well?

    Do you mean the Morrell Wine Bar, adjacent to the Morrell wine retail store in Rockefeller Center?

    If so, I was there about three months ago. The food wasn't bad. My $18 Cobb Salad was pretty good, actually, with fresh ingredients. However, the prices on the wine list are pretty laughable, as they are at the retail store next door. A glass of '97 Etude Pinot Noir (putting aside the issue that it needs about a year or two until it's ready to drink) was about $25, if memory serves. A glass! I bought entire bottles of this for $30 each. But what can you expect given the cost of Morrell's move (from Madison Ave.) and subsequent rents in Rockefeller Center?
