Has anyone been? I'm going tomorrow night for a birthday dinner and want: recommendations and/or news if it's worth spending the $$$.

  1. I have not been to Telepan yet, but it gets universally positive reviews on this and other food forums. Do a search and you'll find lots of threads.

    1. I've been once. A thoroughly enjoyable meal, with interesting food very well prepared and good service.

      1. Went for brunch once. Terrific food, interesting menu items, good service. I've been meaning to go for dinner for a while. Hopefully I'll get a chance to go there soon.

        1. Worth the $. Try the smoked trout.

            Second the trout. The duck is great too - perfectly crispy skin surrounding nice this slices. Also, we walked in minutes before they were closing the kitchen, but we were still seated and were never rushed (with the exception of being asked nicely if we would mind ordering a little quicker than normal before we were seated). I was glad we did when we had the great food. Looking forward to going back for brunch.

          2. I had a very enjoyable lunch there several weeks ago - the trout appetizer was wonderful, and the prix fixe price - $25 - seemed like a bargain.
