T've been to the Basement Bistro three times in the past four years and every time I go I bring a different group of people who I have pumped up so much with anticipation that I fear they will be disappointed. Never happens. The reality exceeds even my memory of it from the previous visit and the most skeptical foodies I've brought are invariably blown away by the entire experience.
Rather than duplicate the ecstatic remarks others have said here, I'll simply say that if Chef Damon presented the food via robot or did his presentation without serving any food at all, the experience would have been extraordinary. Put together, it is easily the most memorable culinary experience of my pretty long life, during which i've gone to the best of NY and Paris, and ranks pretty high if we eliminate "culinary."
On a more mundane, but still amazing (to me) note, having been there twice before and not in two years, and not being a celebrity, I was astounded that Damon not only recognized me this time(and none of my companions, who had never been there, so I know it's not an act). But, beyond that, he also rememberd the obscure town on the other side of the river I spend summers at, where I sat last, and my wine preference as being red.
