if you have not tried Nessa - make your ressie now! I just adore the place and the owner Mark is a chow reader and a great guy! The staff is wonderful as is the food, ambiance and wine list.
I had a girls night out there and Mark stopped by to chat before my friends arrived - he was also kind enough to send the girls some samplers prior to the meal. Needless to say the food was spectacular and the chicken under a brick remains my favorite dish. We had the fig bruchetta - which I had never tried before and it was perfection. The goat cheese and fennel was also sublime. The shrimp salad "app" was tart with just a hint of spice and was yum. Everything was top notch per usual.
Once again - a big thanks to Nessa for adding some sparkle to the PC dining scene - hopefully it's new neighbor will rev the dining landscape in town up even more!
