I was watching "Opening Soon" on Food TV last week and I saw the re-vamping of the Drake. I have heard mixed reviews but no details. Overall, I have not been advised to go there. I am a Chef myself and judging by what the Chef at the Drake had on his sampler menu, it seemed pretty decent- it's easy to talk about food though. Preparing it consistantly is a whole different story. The decor looked stunning-but I don't want to feel as though that is what I am paying for.
