      No, it is a public restaurant.

    2. Does anyone know what the menu/theme will be? I was a fan of Richard's Bistro, and enjoyed the food even when Matt became the chef. However when he assumed ownership as 36 Delux, he really took the menu into strange areas that did not appeal to me.

        Just curious what you thought was strange?

      2. We had a terrific meal here this weekend. Imaginitive, well-built cocktails with respect for the classics, beautiful oysters and a cod fillet baked in the richest, smokiest tastiest bacon evah. Attentive service; everyone at our table was pleased.

          Thanks for the revue. Sure wish they had thier menu published. Apparently no web site yet.
          I've heard conflicting reports as to whether its a private club. I'm assuming you are confirming that it's a Public restaurant.. Matt's 36 Delux "Duck in a Jar" always conjured up visions of Donald Duck's eyes and bill pressed up against the inside of a jar staring out at me. Didn't make my mouth water :<)
