Last minute reservations on a Thursday night offered a table either too early or later than what we really wanted but we're so glad we took the 5pm opening. I thought we might be the only ones eating that early but there were at least another 3 tables taken and by 6 or so many more were filled. We can see why.
The space itself is very comfortable and the staff very friendly.
There were 3 of us, so we got a chance to sample a variety of things - every one was a hit, from the special black squid-ink seafood pasta, to the chilled watermelon salad to the Fromage Blanc Toast.
Although the entrees were all exceptionally good, I think mine "won" - it being the Steamed Halibut surrounded by a fantastic basil broth, which was poured table-side. Next in line was the Black Sea Bass, followed by the Pork Blade Steak.
The Saison Dupont beer, in a champagne-sized bottle, went great with both the fish & meat. A drink you don't see too often, a Pimm's Cup, was also enjoyed with dinner.
So with the above drinks, a shared delicious parfait and 2 Cappuccino's, the bill with tip came to around $75 per person.
We are looking forward to dining here again but won't wait until the last minute to get a reservation.
