Haven't seen anything on them recently and and wanted to give them a shout out after we hit them Friday for a spur of the moment dinner. We had been going to go to Sophia's Grotto (I like them both), but one DC just had to have BsB's roast Chicken,so there we went.

It was full at 8:00, but great service by the quick, friendly (sole) bartender set us up to wait happily for our table. One drink later and table was ready.

Also friendly and professional service there. DC with roast chicken was pleased as punch with his meal. I planned to make a meal of the warmed goat cheese/grilled portabello/spinach salad and the (I had to have it) grilled duck breast w/ a fig-marscapone-walnut ravioli app. Sadly (but understandably-as it was sooo good), the kitchen was down to one last duck and other DCs wanted that duck, too. I took one for the team and shared. We all LOVED it. I have to go back for my original original meal plan and have that duck app all to myself.

On the up side, I was rewarded as another DC and I split a porterhouse steak special. I rarely get steak out as it is so easy to do at home. This one was worth it: more figs and some gorgozola garnished this perfectly MR steak, served alongside great mashed and veg.

This was a terrific meal in a great atmosphere with friendly service. Nice, inexpesive Malbec (Budini) to accomany it. We were all happy.
