    I have not been lately (since last year), but I'm pretty sure that the menu *always* has the mixed greens and herbs salad with egg. Doesn't sound like anything that special, but as many have posted here, don't miss it-- it is absolutely wonderful.

      Thanks. I read about the salad in a few posts, but other than that, there aren't many specific suggestions. I also read some mixed reviews this morning that suprised me. I hope I'm not disappointed!

      Just an update: I went last night and it was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was so wonderful. It was definitely one of my top dining experiences ever.

      My friends and I went for the four course meal. We ordered a really good (but not overly expensive) bottle of pinot noir from California. I started with the greens and herb salad with fried egg, and it was so unexpectedly delicious. I asked them how they made the egg and they told me, so I'm going to try it myself soon! Then I had the roasted grouper with corn chowder. The fish was perfectly cooked, crisp on the top and moist inside. The corn chowder went well with the sweetness of the fish. Then I had the Hudson Valley beef. It was a tenderloin sliced thinly and served over tiny roasted potatoes and mixed beans (green and yellow string beans). I have to say that I didn't like this as much as the other dishes. I think it's because I'm not used to the taste of grass-fed beef, and it was a little too aromatic for me, but it was prepared perfectly. I rounded out the meal with a cherry sorbet with goat cheese souflee/cake thing that was super delicious.
      The service staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.

      Overall, it was an incredible evening and well worth the $130 price tag, including wine and tip, and that's something I never thought I'd say...!
