I was an early Hamersley fan and it sort of dropped off my radar. Lots of new places opened and I hadn't been in a while..x a biz dinner last year.

I had a cousin in town from SF last night; and was planning on Taranta

He wanted to go to Hamersley's and we did.

Great meal..Ms 9 had a goat cheese salad and I had a warm salad of fried brains and greens. Mains were the famous chicken and I had the roast duck which was 1 of the best duck preps I can remember..moist juicy meat and crisp skin. Also tasted the pork tenderloin which was very good. All 4 of us really enjoyed our meal.

Service was friendly and professional.

What struck me was how good the food was..without being overly foams, no molecular cooking..just solid, well they've been doing for years.

I used to think of Hamersley's as 1 of the more expensive places in town but they've kept their apps in the low teens and mains under $ a town where there are a number of places where mains have exceeded $40 and apps $20. I think it represents a good value.

We had drinks at Banq.loved the design..but I wondered how they'll be doing in 5 years.
