Rhone Restaurant

3 of us had dinner last night at Rhone. The wine is great: do take the recommendations, but note: if they ask if you want to try something 'different' be wary. We ordered 3 separate glasses of wine and the one that was 'different' was barely drinkable. The other two, however were really excellent. The biggest drawback on wine is it's price: it's really expensive. There are no bottles available for under $38 dollars. The food is good. Haibut was great, the sirloin was good but has a southern smoked barbeque sauce tinge to it which feels oddly out of character for a Rhone themed restaurant. Lamb was good-fell tenderly off the bone. The interior is cold hard, masculine almost and here is the problem: so is the service. For the prices on the menu a little joi de vive would not have gone astray. Honestly? pull up a stool at the ultra cool bar and enjoy the great wine recommendations from the friendly barstaff, and the tempting charcuterie platter, but skip sitting down for dinner. (At 70 dollars a head, i'ts not just worth it...)
