      I was thinking of going there tonight (just heard about it) and am wondering if it's comfortable for one person to go there and have a glass of wine? How are the small bites? Thanks much.

        im interested in reviews as well...i have reservation there in 2 weeks and the menu looks good though on the expensive side for a west village nook...but the service issues seem to be of concern.

        the new york review got me interested. that rabbit and sweetbread salad sounds just awesome.

          I have a reservation for this Thursday. I will report back after. I'm planning to try that rabbit and sweetbread salad.

          Went back in late December- Had the Milk Fed Porcelet. It was killer. Fork tender and very tasty. Wine list wasn't bad if a little thin (I'm in the wine biz). Regardless it is worth going to to try out and I am thinking of going back which is rare for me in this city.

        Was there a week ago. Service still has a few foibles, but otherwise its solid. I had the rabbit and sweetbread salad and the porcelet, and was very happy overall.

          Just had dinner tonight. We were very impressed. The rabbit and sweetbread salad, the porcelet, the lamb shoulder lasagna and our shared dessert of roasted pineapple were all delicious. This is a great addition to the neighborhood and I think it will do very well, but I do hope they will expand the menu as the choices are quite limited.
