What a dissapointment. Saturday dinner. No wine list. No specials. No relation to the on-line menu. No chance we were going to drop $$$ on this sinking ship. Clearly they are going to close soon. What a shame. I had heard great things about this handsome place. The web site also was very appealing. We left and had a great meal up the road at Metro Bis.

        A friend of mine tried to book a birthday lunch there on April 3rd and was told they couldn't take the reservation because the restaurant would no longer be open JB

      I haven't been there in a few months but always liked the place. Too bad. I think that location is jinxed....

          Never made it to the food. It was that pathetic. First time I've ever the need to cut and run.

            haven't been there in probably over a year, but it was the best Ceasar Salad I've ever had. Sorry to hear about your experience

                I simply followed my instincts. This was surreal. I didn't feel the need to spend $$$ after what was an unbelievable set of cicumstances. Read my original post. My wife and I value our time out and this was a disaster before the bread that never came.
