We had our nicest dinner out in some time here on Valentine's Day. The food was very good, the service was the right balance between attentive and hands-off, and the atmosphere was very cozy.
The space is very small and there is a two-hour limit to seatings, but we didn't feel rushed at all and no one even mentioned the limit to us aside from when we made the initial reservation.
We are often disappointed when we go to new restaurants, but this one really hit the mark.
The menu is limited but features interesting combinations of ingredients and everything we ordered was delicious. Some bistro-style restaurants have tended recently to get too cute with their ingredient combinations, or too pretentious, but this was neither. Just the right balance.
We had the octopus appetizer, a carrot-avocado-pomegranite salad, and the mushroom-matzo ball soup to start. Also, we really liked the bread with bone-marrow butter. Delicious.
Our main were the gnudi and the pickerel. This is one of the only places I've ever encountered that actually manages to make pickerel taste as fresh as I'm used to (I used to work at a fly-in fishing lodge so that freshness is tough to beat). But they nailed it. Probably the best I've had at a restaurant. We had a nice liquid dessert and very much enjoyed being presented little cupcakes as a gift to take home.
We will definitely go back.
