We have hedged our bets with a reservation at another restaurant on the Hill. Friends returning for a week or two from Florida wanted to give the Grain Exchange a try. Recently we have heard nothing good about the place and they do not take reservations. Couple that with what appears to be a wide open environment which would not be conducive to "catching up" conversation and I think we will lobby for a change of venue. Does anyone have any overwhelming reasons based on recent visits that we should reconsider? How was it when you have been there?
