(a)MUSE has an intriguing menu; a lot of creative thought has obviously gone into it. It also shows great care for its customers. On a recent visit, I began by ordering a very complicated appetizer; after about ten minutes (very acceptable in this atmosphere, with speciality drinks and good focaccia bread) the server returned to tell us that the chef was not satisfied with the way the appetizer had "sat" -- it was a potted chicken dish, so that was important. He offered to create another appetizer based on what I liked about the original, and charged only a fraction of the price for it by way of apology. Dinner was gnocchi with turnips, apples and brussels sprouts. Amazing. Touched with paprika honey. The only reason I am giving a rating of four instead of five is that the dessert, a deconstructed pineapple upside down cake, was only so-so. A caveat: the main courses are few; the variety and number of first courses, however, more than make up for that.
