All postings are pretty old... any recent experiences?

    I'll reply to myself here ... went for my birthday dinner and it absolutely blew us away. Frankly I am pretty hard to impress when it comes to restaurant experiences these days. I had the tasting menu ($120 with wine pairing) and my companion had a couple of supplemental dishes, and we shared everything.

    Here's the link to the tasting menu http://www.chezspencer.net/tastingpag... we chose the scallops and the steak, and supplemented with the smoked duck breast, rack of lamb, and hazelnut dessert. Literally everything we had elicited amazement. These folks are celebrating 5 years of business and it shows - polished service, perfectly executed food, great modern space, even the extremely talented live jazz pianist.

    I'm totally amazed I never checked this place out before. I will most definitely be back as soon as possible.

      This is definitely an uphill report. My experience when they opened was over-priced, underperforming food and abrupt waitstaff, and there were several reports like that. Now I'm excited to check Chez Spencer out. They're patio is lovely, if/when the weather warms up again (september).

        I love Chez Spencer. It's one of my favorite places.. the Wood Grilled Flat Iron Steak
        Morels á la Crème, Truffle Butter I dream of and the wonderful 'Bouillabaisse' Soup. I was there not to recent about 7 months ago.
