Visited Quince following CH recommendations and got it just when it opened. Much smaller restaurant than I expected.

Had a squash carpaccio, good idea but weak on the taste. Carpaccio slicing, with small lettuce leaves and olive oil. No squash taste.

Then moved on to the gnocchi. I will only order this in the future, maybe two orders. By far and away the best gnocchi I have ever had. Light, flavor was outstanding!

Shared my wife's duck and that was also outstanding.

Do talk with the wait staff. They are very knowledgeable and will tell you what went into the dish and what to look for so that the eating experience was really enhanced.

Great place.
