DW Bistro?

I went to an event this afternoon that was hosted by the two men who own DW Bistro, on Ft. Apache (I guess that would make it in Summerlin...). There wasn't much in the way of food (nor should there have been), but the "light refreshments" that were served I assume were catered by the restaurant staff, and were delicious. Furthermore, when the hosts were thanked for allowing us to meet in the rec room of their condo (a beautiful 24th floor facility with sweeping views of the city), many people present started raving about their restaurant. I admit to never having heard of it, and was told "but its one of the hottest places in town..." Well, chowhounds, is it? I saw one passing mention of it here on CH, and that's it. I found the menu on google, and I have to admit it was appealing (Jamaican meets New Mexican?? Well, I can see it, one of the gentlemen is Jamaican and perhaps the other is from New Mexico....

Several folks I talked to were especially enthusiastic about the weekend brunch, and I have to admit there are several items (jerk fried chicken and waffles, jerk pork hash, a New Mexican pork stew, etc) that definitely appeal. The prices seem quite reasonable. There also are a number of good-looking vegetarian options so I should be able to convince DH to come along...

I'm wondering if this restaurant really is as good as it sounds, and somehow I've managed to miss it? Or perhaps its too far off-strip to be on most Chowhounds' radar. The good news is that they announced tonight that in early 2013 they will be opening a second location downtown (in the old Andre's location). In the meantime, I guess I will have to make the trek out there and check it out....

Again, curious if any local hounds have been to DW Bistro?
