I really enjoy going to this place when we are in town. There are things that you have to know:
You HAVE TO HAVE A RESERVATION. Seriously people - just make one. It seats so few people, and that's part of the charm. If you can't commit to a reservation, then I would show up early (5 - 5:30) and promise to not try to hang on to your table for the entire night. The other thing is that it takes a while to eat here. I would leave 90 minutes in your schedule for a full meal, 2 hours is even better.
Anything is worth being able to eat the food. The specials are really special. I love the bread basket - something you don't see often on a menu, and the herb lard is fantastic. The flavors are Eastern European, not to be confused with Continental European.
Whoever is coming up with the menu and executing it is doing a great job. See you again next time for sure!
