We decided to try this place out as its been raved about by so many people. Upon entering the building it's easy to tell that it used to be a church. That may or may not be your thing but the grey walls gave the restaurant a cooooolld feeling.
Like others have mentioned, the menu is somewhat unimaginative so we decided to share appetizers and a bottle of wine. The wine list and food prices seemed fair enough and the portions we received were ample. We ordered the chefs selection "fromage & charcuterie", fried lobster tail, mussels with goat cheese & cilantro (which came with goat cheese, chorizo, and cilantro. The menu reads like its an either/or choice) and duck spring roll.
Lets start with the "famous" fried lobster tail. I've had more delicately fried food at McDonalds. The batter was so thick that by the time you hacked through it the poor mummified lobster tail found inside was hardly a prize worth the effort; rubbery and devoid of any flavor other than deep fried grease. What better thing to dip overfried food into than "aioli" (mayo!). The duck spring roll was more like a Chinese take out egg roll, fried to death and all the flavors were muddled together. The mussels were good but extremely rich with the cheese and chorizo. The charcuterie was good though they could have been more thinly sliced. They appeared hand carved (hand hacked?) like someone put a knife in there to see what was going on when they turned it. Cheese was underwhelming. However, this was the most fairly priced item on the menu.
Our plan was to have the appetizers spread out over a long time so we could enjoy at least a bottle of wine if not two (we live within walking distance) but the kitchen said "No deal" and shoved out all the food and wine at once! Nothing like trying to enjoy an appetizer while your other course freeeeze. Will I be back? Negative. Dylan recommended this place. What happened to you, Dylan? You used to be somebody I could trust.
