I am not a foodie. Grill me a piece of fish, throw some papaya salsa and dirty rice with it and I'm happy so fork might have been a little lost on me when friends suggested it on a rainy night. Close to the subway at 2nd and market, it is a smallish, open kitchen welcoming place. A little cramped but for a nasty weekday night it was surprisingly busy. I now know why. The food is great. Innovative with fresh flavors and surprises. I had the root salad to start with veggies roasted but with a bite, the tuna and veal carpaccio that one of had- spectacular as was the soups. Entrees came next, again well thought out and really interesting- Branzino fish, pork, lamb and a seafood pasta. Thankfully they do have small and large plates for most things - I erred, thinking I wouldn't like my entree so order a small. Mistake. It was so good, I wanted more! The only disappointment was dessert. Great description, but not nearly up to the standard of the rest of the meal. They have a set menu if you'd like. When we go again, and we will, I'll try that as it gives starter, entree and table shared pasta with dessert.there is also, on request, a chef's pairing. This isn't an inexpensive place and some may grouse at the value at $65 a head, but iris about quality and flavor versus anything else. Those starving and want to feed can probably head elsewhere.
