I don’t know what it is , but just not the same. The quality just isn’t there. None of the same faces, maybe the place changed hands

Steak. A bottle of wine. Great service. What could be better. Tucked away in a neighborhood we walked here (in the rain) and they could not have been more accommodating. The food and service were perfect. Thank you for a great meal.
