My mother, sister, brother in law and I went here on a friday night to try out the relocated restaurant. It went on a several year hiatus, and I am glad it is back. The decadent wild mushroom bisque is back (albeit not quite as rich as before- but thats a good thing). The selection of appetizers and menu is good but interesting. I had a special wood smoked strip steak that was excellent. Everybody enjoyed the food overall. The waiter was excellent, tended to our needs. The busboys need a little work.
This restaurant is owned by Matt Prentiss who has broken off from the Epicurean Group- formerly the Matt Prentiss Group- they parted ways so the restarant IS NOT in the same group as the Coach Insignia etc. as one reviewer has stated
Now the disappointment- the wine selections. First they had very limited by the glass selections. Their house wines are by Cartlidge and Browne- and are frankly junk- a restaurant of this caliber should not these on the list. Second their mid level cabernet sauvignon by the glass was not in stock. So the only DECENT cabernet was $ 25 a glass!!!!!
I discussed this with the sommelier who was quite snippy and said the waiter should have steered me to the Merlot. Well, I didn't want a merlot...
Come on Matt- get a new sommelier and a better wine list, this place deserves it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
