                My husband has been asking to go there for the longest time! Has anyone tried it and have something to report?

                        I want to hear your capsule review of Amaya. And the decor. ;D

                          Hake was terrific, no matter what you say, FB. Neener.

                          Sea and Smoke was a pre-opening dinner and unfair to review, regardless of how good it may have been. And while I will be returning (despite its location in a distant land) I'm also ethically obligated to remain silent here on CH due to a personal/professional conflict.

                          Avant had a beautiful view and a great Whiskey Sour. I'd tell you more, but that's all I had- we were there for the spa, and the kitchen was not yet open. : (

                          Looking up the stream, I see I made a mistake- 4wino referred to Amaya, not Avant. So no trophy for me. Soon, Mr12 will return from his two weeks at camp, and our wild, heady evenings of culinary indulgence will be over.
