    Had a great dinner last evening! The menu is much like the Waterbury menu. Small plates we had: scallops, lamb tartare, squash blossoms, grilled whole calamari, ham plate, mushroom toast with egg. Large plates: dogfish, rabbit, vegetarian crepes, hangar steak. Everything was delicious and well prepared. We had a very nice wine, but the second bottle was corked. They replaced it immediately without question. Desserts included grilled peach compote, glazed donuts, homemade ice cream and sorbet. The apple cider sorbet was the highlight! Amazing! The only concern I had was that the service was really fast. I'm not sure if they're wanting to turn tables as quickly as possible. It was really busy, though. Will definitely go back!
