L'Espalier and Sel De La Terre are OPEN!

I was surprised to see the now open sign hanging in SDLT's window. I went in to take a look. Short version: as far as atmosphere, I think it's pretty much our worst fears confirmed. L'Espalier now has a very generic, contemporary hotel fine-dining feel to it. Lots of sleekness: I'm sure some of the sterility will wear off with some use, but count my initial impression as disappointed.

SDLT I'm happier with: the downstairs bar already feels like a fun, lively place: great for high quality bar snacks or a dinner at the bar.
