Six of us met for dinner last night. The small, well-lit interior as well as the covered "patio" were full. Service was very good. We had brought in several bottles of wine (corkage is $8) and glasses were appropriately changed as needed.

The appetizers were:

sweetbreads served with arugula- crisp on the outside, soft within, very good; the accompanying sauce was a tad too sweet.

stacked crab salad (I guess it's sort of their signature dish) - excellent presentation and delicious.

tuna tartare on wonton crisps - nothing new but as good as anywhere else I've had it

seared fois gras with dried fruit compote- small portion but nicely prepared, very tasty.

Entrees:

2 of us wanted the veal chop special but they were sold out.

NY Steak with fries - nothing special, with a green peppercorn sauce, fries may have been frozen

John Dory - crisp skin, flesh perfectly cooked

Filet Mignon - served sliced into small medallions, with a wine reduction sauce, sauteed spinach and very good mashed potatoes

Dessert:

flourless chocolate ganache cake - same as it ever was

crepes with banana and chocolate and vanilla ice cream - everyone's favorite

creme brulee also with dried fruit - ok

apple cinammon crisp with ice cream - very good

We drank a Rose Champagne to begin, followed by Beckmen 2002 Marsanne, Abadia Retuerta 2001 Rivola and a 1989 Riussec for dessert.

The tab with tip was about $260.00 We all enjoyed dinner very much and plan to return soon.
