W stopped here after a night filled with fun, food and drinking. It had been a while since our early dinner so our buddy suggested we try the scallops and the meat tray. Both were good but very expensive for what you get, especially for the scallops.
The fun part of this place is the drink possibilities. Their 'mixologist' is more like a chemist. We sat at the bar and it was fun watching him work his ways on the concoctions he had in his arsenal. I was full of beer and so he asked me what I like. I said, "Wheat beer and Captain Morgan". He made me a whiskey sour complete with egg white and lemon juice for the sour. It was good but not my favorite drink ever. He tried to hook me up and went on a limb so I appreciated the effort.
I think the eclectic selection of booze, spritzers for drink additions and overall difference behind the bar made both the fun and the feeling that it was pretentious. I got the impression that the 'mixologist' was the wizard and his helpers were his peasants, almost a lower class. It was a weird vibe.
I doubt I would go back here. I think this is 'the place' for many people out there. Just not me.
