        1. Based on my last experience, the tasting menu is a winner. The only thing that I would question/avoid would be the sommelier's pairing, regarding wines. Now, they may have gotten the "hint," and could have upgraded/improved this. Let's hope so. Ask for specifics, and be prepared to do either a few half-bottles from their list, or wines b-t-g. All of the food was excellent to outstanding.


          1. I think they had a special when I was there. Venison three or four ways. I don't "seek out" venison on a menu, but my husband ordered it. I ordered fish and they tried to do a Hawaiian interpretation of it...problem is...I'm from Hawaii. Bad, bad, bad. Hawaii was in the Sugar Bowl last year, so I don't think you'll run into that problem. The venison was excellent.
