I'm quite curious.
Just back from a 4-day weekend with friends (Gov't employee). Had lovely meals at Antoine's, RioMar, and especially Marisol. Best though was a lunch at Marisol. We arrived for lunch at 1:00 pm on a Saturday. Everything was perfect: cooking, ingredients, presentation, service, courtyard setting, wines. The reason I'm posting is because we were the only table the entire 2 hours we were there! Is there something the locals know (health dept., recent bad review, scanda, etc.) that would explain this??!?
p.s. Our dinner at Feelings that evening was mediocre - I thought it had a good reputation but now feel it is highly over-rated.
