Tried them for supper tonight. Love the space. Thought the service was mostly good. Food, though, was thoroughly unimpressive.

Started with savory goat cheescake. It was really bland, and way fluffy. I was really hungry, and could only eat 1/4 of it before becoming thoroughly bored with it.

I was especially looking forward to porchetta, which they seem to be positioning as their signature dish. I liked the flavor and the crispy skin, but it was incredibly gristly. I had to ask for a side plate to have somewhere to put the 50% of each bite that I couldn't break up by chewing or swallow. Again, could only stand to do that for about 1/4 of the dish.

The one notable lapse in service was a total failure to inquire after two 1/4 eaten plates.

I'm sure I'll try them again some time, but it won't be until I've read lots of favorable reports of the food.
