I was lucky enough to have a tour of this restaurant prior to its grand opening. What a beautiful place. We met with the wife/owner whose husband/owner is the chef--you can tell how much love they have for this venture. Entirely refurbished the old Taft Hotel restaurant space using a lot of period pieces and refurbished finishings, etc. While we were there we questioned the acoustics as the venue is quite palatial and open. They do have some long curtains to help. For anyone who has dined there, I was curious what you thought of the acoustics. I am thinking of booking a 16-person dinner there up in the balcony area--their alcove private room I think is too small for my function.
