I had heard good things, and I've been to Marcus's Aquavit, so we were expecting greatness.
If you go, be sure to avoid the table we had: in the hallway next to the server's station. Each time they grabbed some silverware, they slammed the drawer closed and we felt it in the back of our booth seat. Plus, we were privy to all their chit-chat about other tables--- not cool.
When I ordered a Gibson to start, our waitress was not quite sure what it was. I explained that a Gibson is a gin martini served with cocktial onions. The woman at the next table said, 'I think he's the only man in the world who knows what a Gibson is!".
The braised short rib dish was unique: the meat was seared into a block about the size of a deck of cards (but twice as thick). The result is a crisp, carbon exterior--- wonderfully, juicy within.
About $140 for the three of us.
Will not return.
