absolutely amazingly yes.

Wonderfully broad-yet-succinct menu.
Ridiculously reasonable prices.
Non-stuffy staff/atmosphere (yet still chic

    Love the atmosphere. Found it very inconsistent and the menu did not work well together IMO. I'd frequent it if it was in the neighborhood, but can't see it as a destination place.

      I loved the eclecticisiasciiticty of the menu, my date (nearly a vegetarian) was able to get something decidedly different (tandoori cauliflower and lentil soup) while I was able to get something that made the foodie/localvore in me super happy, in a setting where I had a perfect selection of local beer on tap and yea... i live in fairfax, which is devoid of anything even remotely like this.

        i had a great meal there. but i would have to try again to tell if it is worthy of all the hype. the atmosphere definitely is.

          I went there for dinner a couple of weeks ago and liked it a lot. Their hanger steak was great as was the split pea and sausage soup. It's hard to get the non-foodie husband away from the suburban chains but he liked it as well.
