Very good food and very very good service. BUT possibly the worst room in the city. Really bad seating and energy. Kinda trying the "Its all about the food" gag but the problem is, they still "designed" it. The 3 tops leaves someone staring at the wall literally 4 ft away, which I had to do last week. I would have emailed them directly but their website is "coming soon". I sincerely hope they do something to make it less pretentious and more inviting (if this place was done like Il Buco in NY it would be a HUGE hit.) The space simply does not match the warmth and care of the food. I spend about $45,000 a year on dining out and I wouldn't mind giving these chefs some of that. So, go there with a friend, NOT a date or definitely not on business.
