Animal was sublime...run don't walk.
I finally had a chance to eat at Animal last night & I am already planning a return visit. Each and every dish we ordered was excellent, the service was casual yet professional, and the space calm & soothing. There were four people in our party which enabled us to order & share quite a selection. However we did over-order (that's not to say we didn't clean our plates tho!). The Beer & Wine list was reasonably priced & eclectic with the option to order any wine as a glass, carafe or bottle. As I said, each and every dish was wonderful & as you can see I have starred a few that shouldn't be missed. I look forward to eating at Animal again very soon.
