We are visitors from southern California, and this was our first time eating here and we had a wonderful experience. We went there for the New Urban Eats menu, which was selections of dishes, in smaller portions, off the regular menu.The host sat us next to the fireplace which was nice because it was cold outside. The food was amazing. I started with the mushroom bisque. It had a small dice of charred fennel on top and the flavors were awesome, and it was served at the perfect temp, and that says a lot because I am VERY picky about soups. It was great for the weather. My girlfriend had the risotto croquettes that had a hint of Stilton blue cheese, and served with a red onion jam. another perfect dish. For the entree, I had the smoked pork tenderloin and she had the short rib. Both were great and the perfect portions. The flavors were completely spot-on. For dessert, I had the S'more dish and she had the coffee and cardamon creme brulee, both delicious. i can't stress how perfect the portions are for a tasting menu. they offer wine pairings with each dish, but i am not a drinker so we went with iced tea and water. Our server Terrence was great. Very informative and he was extremely nice. He didn't treat us any different then the wine-drinking patrons, which i appreciated. \r
The ambiance was superb with fantastic lighting and soft jazz playing in the background. Great stuff. the restrooms are located on the second floor, until the restaurant restrooms are finished being built, but that was really no problem. \r
Its truly amazing to come to such a wonderful restaurant, and to receive the kind of SERVICE AND FOOD that we did, and to find out how new it is, being only open for 6 months! I highly recommend going here and be sure and ask for Terrence. You won't be disappointed by the experience.
