    I can't believe he is still in business. Maybe he fixed the problems. He really is a great chef but a horrible business man. Maybe his wife took a more active interest in the restaurant and got it on track. No longer open for lunch on the weekends (when we used to go). I am thinking of giving it another try but am in no rush. Maybe you could "take one for the team" and go, then post your experience.

      as you were the only one to respond....looks like we will be "taking one for the team" as I'm going w/ a group of about 10 for a holiday dinner in 2 weeks. it's our supper club and one of the women loves it - fingers crossed!

      My wife and I have been there a couple times over the last six months. The first time, we really liked it, the panna cotta with espresso granita was the highlight. The second time was not as good - nothing really wrong to speak of, just wasn't quite as "on". Also, they seemed a little short-staffed the second time, even though the resturant was far from full. Not sure if it is really a destination place, but it does have some likeable low-key charm.
