Gosh, this was our first visit back to Dailey's in over twenty years. We remember when the Peasant Boys--Bob Amick(One Midtown Kitchen, Two Urban Licks), Sterve Nygren(Serenbe Farm), and the late Richard(Can't use his nick name) Dailey, opened this establishment. They were always ahead of the curve, and converted this old parking garage, into a Downtown destination restaurant. It's now under different ownership, but our return visit, was most refreshing. Of course we started in the still cool, jazz bar downstairs, and then up we went. The large dining hall is still basically the same. We both started with the legendary French Onion Soup, that helped to make them famous, and it was just as good as ever. I could not resist that crispy Roasted Duck, with Cognac Sauce. It was my favorite then, as it is now. My partner ordered the Swordfish w/Mustard Sauce. Outstanding! But best of all, they still have, what I call, the Dessert Altar. Walk-up two steps, and you can see the full array of deserts. This is suppose to be the New Year, and my diet. Oh well, maybe next month. It's nice to see people coming back, and moving into the Downtown area. To Dailey's, another twenty-five years.
Pros: Still Excellent Downtown Dining! Dessert Altar!
Cons: Parking Can Be Tight!
