We were great fans when Dale and Larry owned it. When the new chef Matt took over we dined there twice and were very disappointed. He really did not do a good job with some of Dale's signature dishes. After about a year or so we decided to try again. WOW!!! Matt should stick to his own creations. He is a tremendous talent. We have dined twice in two months and were amazed both times. Our most recent dinner began with Shrimp Orleanaise(an old Dale dish) and while not the same as the original was quite good. I had the Torchon of Foie Gras with Fig jam on Brioche toast points. Incredible. we have dined at Daniel in NY French Laundry in Yountville and many other top tier establishments and I must say I've never had better. We liked it so much we snuck in a second order before our entrees arrived. My better half had the Short ribs with Butternut squash puree. I think it was a Port demi glace. This was her second time having that dish and it was spectacular again. I had the Filet with a parsnip-turnip puree again with Port demi glace. Cooked perfectly. My wife is an incredibly talented amateur chef and very tough critic and she couldn't stop raving about the purees. Finally we split a chocolate mousse and a glass of Dolce. A perfect end. The wine list is somewhat limited and surely not the reason to come to a restaurant like this. Come for the food and watch a blossoming young talent produce some of the best dishes in the city.
