Let's make a few things clear from the get-go.

You can't see the food. The room's as dark as a planetarium exploring the bare spaces beyond Pluto. Want to read the menu? Pick up the little pinpoint flashlight sitting on your table.

The seats are hard, about as comfortable as getting fired by Donald Trump.

Sound level? Punishing.

Oh, yeah. And the place isn't even finished yet.

But there's nothing provisional about this: At just 3 months old, clarklewis is our Restaurant of the Year for 2004.
