Had a wonderful time. He added a private enclosed space where the booths were on the left for special tasting, etc – most of the booths are gone, outside area with heaters added, bar area to eat – everything is different except for the food – for 18 years it has been and is still great. Sat @ the bar area with a buddy, well is bombay and absolut, no need to upgrade the martinis (9.50) made perfectly, shacked hard with the nice little ice flakes on top. Starter was the beet salad with 2 goat cheese croutons and the french onion soup (6.95/8.25). Both were generous portions, both some of the best for what they were I have ever had. The soup was very rich, like 5 Dudley’s, with a nice hunk of bread (they make terrific baked goods, if you ever go to Peet’s in brentwood, they make all that stuff, over the top good) and wonderful cheese. The beet salad was huge and yummy. Mains were the salmon and short ribs (17.50/18.50) – did not try the salmon, but my friend really seemed to like it (no veggies) the rib was de-boned and served with cheese infused potatoes and veggies – very large portions of everything – did a togo for half the meal and I am a big eater. Quality and flavor was first rate. Wine list is limited and expensive, chateauneuf du pape was $ 40, least expensive red, a rhone, was $ 34.00 – don’t know what the corkage is, but that might be a way to go. Positive review was done this last week, so the place was jumping with a slightly older crowd – everyone was having a great time – so will you if you go. Kurt
