Tell me its not so! Was dismayed to see that Hearth has been repeatedly singled out in recent posts here as having settled into -essentially - restaurant mediocrity and I had SO looked forward to taking my boyfriend there...I remember many wonderful dinners eaten at the pass through (the gnocchi....mmm....) and have been talking this place up to him for weeks...I've moved out of town and will be returning for a few dinners later this week with him. Hearth had been A #1 on my list of places to return to (but only at the pass through...I always found the house of the restaurant oddly off-putting) but now am unsure.
Do I want to take a chance on Hearth? Or has all the love and care gone north to Insieme? Is it worth it? Or do we go to my other old faithful, Blue Ribbon on Downing?
