  1. If you're willing to spring for the tasting menu, it is VERY well worth it. If not, the duck 5 ways is amazing, as are the wild hedgehog risotto and the grilled cheese dessert. (Sounds strange, but it works better than you can imagine.) All in all, you're in for a fantastic evening.

    1. We ate there Saturday. The iron chef shrimp appetizer was great, as was the risotto. The asparagus soup with crab was very good but not as amazing. Couldn't fit in dessert but the little give giveaway at the end, white chocolate with praline was wonderful. Also, the wine list was pretty pricy but we found a good value from Spain--big, purple, and delicious. Have fun.

      1. I have to second the duck 5 ways...what a great, great place...I'm envious!
