Over time, Julian's became my favorite restaurant and I've eaten all over the world. Although imperious, the owner/chef/raconteur Steven Jackendorff is a delight once you understand his committment to his restaurant and his craft. Although occassionally betrayed by the desserts provided by a local bakery (stick wtih the Mousse), I have had trouble just getting past the apps. His mushroom soup is a creamy delight, and when their is lobster bisque on the menu I always recommend it. Many meals were spent with just a glass (or more) of wine (selected by Steven) and the marinated peppers/mozzarella/soprasetta anitpasti plate. The steak was always prepared perfectly, but don't ask for a a steak knife, you won't need it. Each year Steven will bring back a few new items from his travels to Italy/China and who knows where the future will take him. Most impressive wine selection in town and Steven is good at targeting for value when he selects wine--don't trust the menu, trust the man who picked the wines he carries. As I said in the title line, I would eat my last meal there (lots of soup, peppers and probably the bolognese) and end with a dark cup of coffee and a choca-mocha mousse and die a happy man.
