I have been here many times but found last night's meal surpassed previous visits. Have never had the appetizers before so had not realized one needs to bring a camera to record the visual effect. The escargots and portobello looked good enough to eat and the hummus and pappadum were a visual extravaganza. Meal was excellent and none of the... More
