Anyone been yet?

My husband and I wandered in (to see if they were open) and stayed for drinks and an appetizer. The space is completely different. You would never know it was the former home of Icarus. Very Contemporary- all black and white and mirrors- interesting. We sat at the bar and ordered Ceviche and cocktails. Cocktail list was pretty standard and the service was friendly. I had a hibiscus cocktail that was really good (flower was edible and tasted like a fruit roll-up- in a good way). Ceviche was tiny- probably 3 bites for $15. Bread was slightly stale (which is odd since they've only been open a few days). Bartender told me that the chef was a young guy from Miami- we didn't stay for dinner, but meals were in the 25-35 range.

    Great looking space, good bartending but a sub-par cocktail list, food just okay.

    Not really a South End neighborhood place: looks like it's going for the same nightclubby crowd that 28 Degrees and the Theatre District clubs attract on weekends.

      I am bumping this. Either I am not adept in searching the new format here, or there hasn't been much chatter on Noche?

        I was thinking of going here next month for a birthday dinner, but you're right, there is not much in the way of reviews here. I did find a number of positive ones on yelp, take that for what it is!

          same owners as the federal and the tap. my understanding is they're looking to make this a "place for drinks and scening", moreso than a dining destination. food is not the top priority here. keep in mind a peanut butter cocktail on the drinks menu.
