Has anyone been to Alfred in the 1st?
Lots of people including Jane Sigal of Food and Wine seem to love it, but every time I walk by it seems empty. The menu looks great and changes daily with the season. They also have a cool little wine bar/ comptoir on the Montpensier side.
In poking around to find more info about Hidden Kitchen's move to Verjus wine bar and restaurant (see http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/810061 ) -- and the specific site(s) they will take over -- I came across the (now extinct) Alfred wine bar and restaurant.
And then I stumbled on this lonely little CH post. It looks like the OP had this site in mind for a while! We look forward to hearing of the opening in a few days . . . . -- Jake
