    I have not been to the Herb Farm since Jerry left, but he is opening his own restaurant downtown this summer. Might be worth it to wait for that, and I guarantee the price tag won't be so steep.

      Jerry's restaurant will be on Cap Hill and will be Indian inspired cuisine so I doubt it will be an instead of the Herb Farm. I've heard good things about the new chef, he does have big shoes to fill though.

        i don't think the food will be indian inspired, only the style of plating. the interview i read said it will be local focus for flavor, but a specific platter type style of dining he experienced in india.

      there are a few other places to have a PNW dining experience .. Sitka & Spruce (if you don't mind the wait, the location, the decor), Union, Lark come to mind immediately ...
