We got a group of ten local hounds together and went to G2B for dinner last night. I had a great time, hope everyone else did. Will recap the things I tasted, and hope the others will chime in on what they had and what they thought of the place. I called the in the afternoon to book the table, explaining that we might come in at staggered times and hoped it wouldn't be a problem. I got a call back, very friendly and accommodating. I thought the service was great - it must have been tough to work a table that big and keep track of various checks, drink orders, etc. I thought the room was clean and attractive, and Lulu especially loved the ceiling with the ever changing colored lights.

I was really happy with the things I ate. We got a bunch of shared bar snacks: the goat cheese croquettes, warm marinated olives, hot smoked trout on toast and grilled prosciutto wrapped figs. I didn't taste the figs, but thought everything else was very tasty. Really glad the trout was recommended - I loved it.

LulusDad got a burger and seemed pleased with it. Lulu got the pizza bianco which came with olive oil, roasted garlic, ricotta, mozzarella, arugula. She loved it, and the bite I had was really good too. I got the gnocchi with tarragon cream sauce and an arugula pesto. I thought this was outstanding. I'd happily order it or the pizza bianco again, along with the cheese croquettes and the smoked trout. I had two different wines; a California chardonnay and a Spanish rioja and enjoyed both.

thanks to everyone who came - it was a fun group, and I hope we can do something fun again soon.
