Just got an email about this. Figured I'd pass it along.
The much hyped and prematurely advertised Jaden's Restaurant and Bar that opened just in time to hold a NYE bash. Since then, things have tapered off dramatically, partly because no-body knows they're finally open (or where they are located). While the food is ambitious--lump crab and scallion cakes served with shaved jicama slaw--it's not accomplished . . . yet. Having said that, the place has potential, and the wine list is fairly extensive and very creatively written. Definitely worth a read. Anyway, Jaden's is having its "Grand Opening Gala" January 12, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeurves which, I'm told, will be miniature versions of menu items. There's nothing better than trying out a place for free you know. RSVP to www.jadens.com.
Any Chowhounds going?
