I am going to Town tonight for dinner. Any opinions/recommendations? Thanks!

    I went and agree with all of you that it was lack-luster. The best part of the meal was the martini (I love the glasses they come in). I can always tell if I'm going to like a restaurant by its bread basket, and I seriously disliked a) the fact that a guy came around to hand out the rolls and b) the fact that the rolls there have a croissant-like consistency. I ordered the cod off of the RW menu but ordered an app from the main menu (none of the RW options appealed to me). I had the tomato salad app which was good, but nothing too memorabe, and the cod was pretty delicious. I had a good experience overall, but like I said, that was mostly a result of the company and cocktails :)

        I went for restaurant week lunch and had the Almond Gazpacho, Duck Tortellini, and mocha dessert. I also tried a friend's beet salad and shared the escargot risotto from the regular menu. The food was very mediocre.

          I second that. Swanky but not worth your time, money and stomach space.
