Market Table -- a review

Being a Little Owl fan, I had to try Market Table. It was great. Although not intentional, we each had the scallop wrapped in bacon as a starter. Delicious. For mains we had the lamb shank, swordfish, cod, and chicken. I wasn't a great fan of the swordfish, but the other three were superb. To finish the meal (and this was tough because we were stuffed), we shared an apple cobbler. The chicken is similar to Little Owl (which is to say amazing). The lamb shank was incredibly rich and the meat fell of the bone. I didn't taste the cod, but it got great reviews at the table. The space is fun and informal, although it could use some additional lighting (for those of us with slightly aging eyes). Service was gracious and attentive without being overbearing. The staff is well trained and take their cues from the Danny Meyer school of hospitality. WILCO on the stereo -- what could be bad? Market Table allows you to bring one bottle of wine without charging corkage (which we did) so I don't know what the wine list was like. They are on opentable.
