It was wonderful! Here is their new site, complete with lunch and dinner menus.
I took my husband there for his birthday, and it was well worth it. We started with the grilled artichoke appetizer, which he said was his favorite. Next was bread, which was so soft, it melted in your mouth. I had the Fresh Linguini with Portabella and Wild Mushroom Ragu. Amazing! The sauce was so fresh, you could still taste the wine flavor. (When we cook with wine, the flavor is never that intense.) He had the special, which was a Root Vegetable Risotto. The sauce had an earthy, nutty taste, which really highlighted the vegetables’ rich flavor.
For dessert, we had a raspberry-infused chocolate cupcake and some other chocolate cake with a butter cream frosting. The latter was better, although both were rich and delicious.
If you go, bring your appetite and your credit card. It’s not a cheap date. The lunch prices are a little better.
Based on the menu, I was expecting a more plush, warm environment. It was “modern,” I guess, with steel tables and lots of silver, black and light purple colors. Our waiter was friendly. I was glad to see the place was packed. If you didn’t have reservations, you weren’t getting in before 8:30 on Friday night.
We’ll be back for special occasions.
