Other than the fact that he uses the phrase "the next best thing" a few times too many in his review, Craig Leban's review in tomorrow's Inky (received by home subscribers today) really supports the place. Then again, one of his highlights was the French Press Coffee. Considering the fact the the place is rarely busy, Leban made two trips without being apparantly "revealed".
The other big surprise was that the noise level was in mid 80 decibels! Wow!
I haven't been there yet as there are so many other places and the menu is on the high end of moderate, but as a neighborhood person I hope they get more business.
Meanwhile, went back to Mixto last night and and had a super meal of their porkchops in Marsala wine (with great Mashed Potatoes, two kinds of rice and 2 kinds of beans, ($13.95 on menu! with a $4.00 bottle of Corona) it was great! The view of watching people on Pine street was fun!
