Do you create unique foods?

This place was on restaurant makeover last night. Anybody tried it? It used to be called Ithaca, never went there but the food looked quite good on the show.

    We were at Peridot in early September and had disappointing meals. The manager and server were very friendly and helpful, however, the food was poorly prepared. I had the fish special which was very much overdone (not my favorite way to prepare fish) and my partner's lamb was so overdone that she could not eat it - very unusual for her. Perhaps this was an off night for the kitchen. It was late-ish but people came in after us and the room was essentially empty and I sensed that perhaps the manager was somehow involved with the cooking. Off night or not there are just too many places I want to try that I am unlikely to go back - this is perhaps my loss.

      I went there this summer, post-makeover, and the food was okay.

      Here's the other thread on Peridot:

        I did see that thread, I was wondering if there were any more opinions. No website yet.

        Do they have a website? Can't seem to find them.
