    If you do a search on the board for it, you will see some reviews. But in short: I liked it, its a great addition to the 'hood. Dishes run from $18-30, not cheap, but worth it. The chicken is really good, and talk the server into serving you the ribs from the bar menu. But the best thing about the place is the interior, its beautiful.

      We went a couple of weeks ago and it was a great meal. I had the warm pea soup with chilled lobster salad, which was great. Hubby had the salad with figs, which was outstanding. My friends drank their apps, with the highlight being the martini with cucumber and gin. For the main I had the cod with corn, fava, tomatoes and other veggies, which was summer prfectly put in a plate. Hubbie had the snapper with bok choi and thai flavors, which was good but I liked mine better. Our friend had the bass with broccoli rabe, whch was also really good. Two other people had the duck, which was wonderful and the portion really big. For dessert we can the pistachio semifredo thatc omes over a really intense brownie. This was harder and more intense that other semifreddos I've had- I think the consistency wasn't what I wanted, but the rest of the table loved it. The wine was the dissapointment of the night,but I can't remember what we ordered. Service was nice and accomodating, and they were very nice while we waited for our friend who was almost 30 minutes late. All and all, a great experience.
