My boyfriend just became a second year surgical resident and I want to take him out to a romantic restaurant to celebrate. Help.

      What do you enjoy most there?

        We've done the Tasting Menu twice now (back in winter and now in the spring). Highly recommended.

            I have not been, but a good friend had dined there recently - and his comment was they managed to charge almost twice for the same type and quantity of food as before the changes! Specially the appetizers!
            While the a la carte prices look formidable, perhaps the tasting menu at $85 is a good value?
