Ate at August (Bleeker & Charles) last night just before Asimov's review and though I like Eric's reviews can't say I agree this time. Cho Bottakuri - Japanese for big rig off.
Don't want to do a full review - I did that for a living for 14 years - but basically there is a total disconnect between price and value. It was one of those sneeky bills where you eat nothing and the price is $200: one appetizer (for four people), one dessert, one of the least expensive bottles of wine and four main courses.
Better to eat at Casa Mono.
