I know you all know about this place already, and it had been on my list of places to visit for some time, but I finally got there last night.

My aunt and I walked in with no reservation at just after 5 and there were 2 tables taken, the rest of the dining room empty. We asked if we could sit for the early bird special and they squeezed us in - we were a little doubtful that it was such a problem, but I openly admit that it was *packed* and people were waiting for a seat by the time we left at about 6:30. Next time I'll make reservations :)

Great choices for the early bird right now, we loved everything we had - we'd both return in a heart beat.

We had:
Cauliflower soup (as an amuse - I didn't quite catch the whole description, but it was definitely tasty)
Mesclun salad with fried camembert cheese (wow this stuff was delicious!)
Early girl tomato bisque (spicy, but lovely, and I'm not a huge tomato fan)
Salmon over beets and apples? (salmon was delicious - I only got a bite!)
Mussels in white wine/butter sauce with pomme frites (sadly my least favorite of the evening, but still not bad)
Vanilla bean creme brulee

We both had a glass of the house chardonnay which was really good too - I'm usually not a big chardonnay drinker, but this was nice!

We were both charmed by the chef coming out to shake hands during the meal and then when we left he came out after us to give us a very European kiss goodbye.

As I said, I haven't been there before, but based on my visit, I'd say it's going strong! If you haven't been already, go now :)
