Booked an afternoon reservation on a Saturday for four and it was quite lovely in a traditional way. Some reviewers have this pegged as a very trendy place, but since I have not been there for the the nightlife, I'll just comment on my afternoon get-together.
I had Eggs Benedict sitting on a crab cake topped with sauteed spinach and southwestern style home fries and it was very, very good. That was $16, which, I agree is quite expensive even if there are two eggs. Everything was very fresh, the wait staff was cordial and attentive and the overall experience was a happy one. The main theme was Mother's Day. so lots of little kids running around yelling and generally causing mayhem. I happen to love the sound of children laughing so I enjoyed the 'John Cage' experience especially the two Japanese 2-year-old girls in pink tu-tu's running around like little speedsters. How precious is that?
I think this place use to be the Black Goose restaurant. If I opened a restaurant with a bar I would name it something more catchy for people than numbers. It just seems a little lazy. I think the Red Bear would be good and have a giant stuffed reddish-brown bear at the entrance to cement the name of the place in people's minds. Just saying.
