Anyone been there? Was it good? What should we order?

  1. Have not eaten there, but have read several times, that the burger is very good, although very expensive...

      Was just there a few weeks ago for a business lunch. If you can swing it, get the $32 burger, I would say it's in the "not miss" category.

    2. I'd give it a try. They have a nice breakfast, and if you stay at the City Club hotel, they handle room service. Gets very crowded pre-theater so try to get in after 8 o'clock.

      1. I've gone there several times and always greatly enjoyed it. I've typically gone to it as a pre-theatre option and have had the prix fixe, so I haven't gotten a chance to try most of what was on the wider menu. The venison orecchiete were excellent (though I think it might be more of a fall dish), as was a Korobuta pork dish I remember having there. Also, they made a peanut chocolate bombe with salted caramel ice cream that I'd also recommend.

        1. Hate to be the dissenter - but i thought it was just "eh" Maybe it was the restaurant week menu, but I expected much more. Service was way off as well. I did an extensive review back in the winter about the place....
