Recent L'impero experiences?
I have a reservation next month for L'impero, but I've heard of some negative experiences lately. They are operating under a new chef, correct? Does anyone have any very recent experiences to share? If you think I should change the reservation, where would you suggest going (where I can actually get a decent reservation about 20 days from now...so not babbo or lupa)?
Recent thread which has lots of L'impero info:
I was impressed, but not blown away. The octopus and sardine appetizers were very good. I liked the sea urchin pasta, but I've had better versions of this dish elsewhere (Roberto Passon, I think).
