I don't care about the Iron Chef hoo ha. We ate at Marc Forigone tonight and the food was delicious. Ambiance warm, rustic, but somehow hip. Excellent Nantucket bays, raw, in a lemony cold "broth" with uni and a few clementines floating about. Followed by monkfish with a hugh haunch of bone marrow - complex and wonderful flavors, fun to eat. Others had pork chop, chicken under a brick (was there ever a better chicken?) Warm and responsive service, appropriate wines, robust and homey desserts. Wow. I'd go back there again and again.
