new Fid menu
Fid just launched a new, lower-priced menu, and added Sunday brunch. Has anyone had a chance to check it out? I've enjoyed the meals I had at Fid in the past, but they were pricey. I like the idea that they are making their great, innovative food accessible to more people.

Honestly, I miss the little gelatos and aperitifs of expensive-fid, but the food is still delicious. I've had both brunch and dinner in the past two weeks--their eggs benny is great, but the smoked halibut and eggs is even better. For dinner I had a brilliant mushroom tart followed by the chicken with gnocchi. As ever, the chicken was lovely. The gnocchi was a bit flour-y, but that's just me being obsessively nit-picky; it was still fantastic.
I've been to Fid probably 4 or 5 times since the revamp and I've been extremely impressed each time. This includes at least 1 dinner, 1 lunch and a brunch visit. The new menu has the same high quality you would expect based on the restaurant's reputation, but the prices are much lower. Dinner with my husband last week: two apps, two mains, wine and coffee for under $100 (tax and tip included). Brunch/lunches we've had are comparable pricewise to Jane's.
Went for dinner on Friday evening. Had a fabulous Cider Braised Rabbit with Creamy Polenta. Very good. I like the new casual style. I did not feel as if I had to order an appetizer or a dessert so it was very affordable (glass of wine and tip $32). Same great food, lower prices...what's not to like!
Would highly recommend.
