black steel-- hang on to your wallets

Ok friends, this one made a left turn and came here instead of Vegas. Pretty bartenders and hostesses, fine. Glitzy, over the top Goth black and metal decor, why not. Big hoo ha over Vodka bar & mad scientist curling glass drafts and infusion tanks and "Starting at $12" mediocre by the glass wines...Food is overhyped overwrought, overpriced. Exception: Kobe beef: Not bad, just overpriced at $42. We laughed when we thought we'd share a ravioli appetizer for $15....one little pillow smothered in truffle laced sauce arrived. hello? $14 for bottled water. This is not Sona. This is not Ferran Adria. This is wanna be food for people who are not really into the food. Just Vegas style decor and high priced liquor to impress the girls or the expense account client for a glamorous Hollywood "experience"
Priced like it was a fabulous restaurant and it wasn't. Over $300 for 4 people,with 1 cocktail and 4 wines by the glass--as bottles start at 55 and average at over 85. Oh and valet parking is $8... Next!
