The fellow and I went on Monday night, and it was quite empty (maybe a combo of first week open and people not being sure it was open on Monday, in particular). We had a nice meal. Several veggie options for me. I ended up with the Bruschetta, which was 4 big pieces of crisp and chewy bread (not soggy at all) piled with tomatoes, and covered in melted cheese. All on a pile of green, so it ends up being a tasty salad when you are done with the bread. The fellow had really really good cream of crab soup, according to him. And he liked the applesauce meatball sandwich, but didn't love it. Thought it needed some sort of sauce (even though he was quick to point out the meatballs weren't dry). We also tried the chocolate dessert (I forget its name), which was good, but the texture was slightly different than I am used to, so I couldn't make up my mind about it.
Great service. Nice bartender who also came over to our table. There was a guy at the bar who ordered the calamari, but it came out sprinkled with cheese (this was not mentioned in the description on the menu) and he was allergic (?) and they took it back without any hassles and made him a new one. They offered us the first one because they said otherwise it would have gone to waste.
Chill atmosphere, but mostly for couples or people looking to eat at the bar as the weren't many (any?) tables that could seat more than 4 (which would be a squeeze). They have Resurrection on tap, which is a plus for the boy, and reasonable wines by the glass for me. No smoking, small TV in the corner, but I got a sense it would stay off unless someone asked for it to be turned on. Confirmed that the chef is from Lulu's. I hope people give it a try...
