  1. I've only been there once, but if the skate wing is on the menu, by God make sure you get it!

      I was really disappointed with the food (skate included) that's come out of the kitchen after Deepak Kaul left. The skate (and a similar preparation of halibut) in the good ol' days were good indeed...

    2. The chicken liver app. is amazing, if you like chicken livers!!!

      1. I thought the vegetable antipasto was really different and good.

        1. I was there last week and had the following:

          celery juice cocktail (delightful and refreshing!)
          oysters (how could they not be good?)
          pea/spinach soup with creme fraiche (very, very good)
          duck three ways (their version of a choucroute and so delicious - the duck sausage and confit leg were especially good)

          my father had the braised meatballs with orechiette and piave cheese and he loved it. I could barely steal a bite!

            I second the meatballs- they are outstanding! The roast chicken is also great- but I didn't like the gnocchi very much..

          2. The new seasonal menu is full of things I haven't tried. Time for a revisit. Some things I do see that I've liked: vegetable antipasto, charcuterie plate, lemon pudding with huckleberry sauce. Cocktails are always well made here.
