Great food, maybe greater prices, but still a worthwhile experience.
Caesar Salad wonderful with perfect romaine hearts, anchovies, and croutons.
Filet Mignon was over-priced, with no sauce available on the menu. We asked for bernaise or mushroom or something. Kind waiter said he would ask the chef (owner) who was enjoying himself next to us, greeting other diners. This was a Monday night with a light crowd, so you have to know that this chef-owner has loved his business for a long time, and wants to perform his exceptional creations for the duration, health permitting.
Steak was superb, tender, and cooked to perfection. Chef created fresh mushroom sauce of a kind we never had before. For sure it had some quality liquor, maybe B&B, in it; and there was no extra charge on the slightly inflated price of the filet ($40 for 11 oz...)
We also had the veal parm. Very thinly sliced, large portion, lots of cheese, tasty, but just *** out of 4.
Go eat there now before it's too late.
