Swallow

Has anyone been here? I know Laban wasn't thrilled with it but someone at work gave it a rave review. Thinking of trying it but would like opinions from the hounds.

  1. I've been there a couple times and really liked it, but I haven't been in months. I especially liked the fennel-mushroom salad and the bone-in pork loin. I remember the desserts being pretty good, too.

    1. We went early on, before the LaBan review. The service was fine, we ate outside, it was pretty dark inside. I only remember the frogs leg appetizer and that was quite good. Although I wouldn't give it 3 bells, I didn't think it deserved 1. I know we commented that we'd go back again.
      If you go, let us know.

      1. re: pat j

        Thanks to both of you. I was going to try it this weekend but they are on vacation. Will let you know after I get there.

      2. My bookclub stopped by for dessert after hitting another NL place. We sat outside with coffee (French press, mmmmm), creme brulee and another dessert I cannot remember the name of I think it might have been the Bonaparte. They were wonderful and the service was excellent. As much as I enjoy reading him, I don't put all my faith in CL all the time. Swallow is on my list of places to go to have a full dinner anyway.
