Soiree on Ditmars

Tried this place on Friday and was favorably impressed. It is prix fixe, $20, with an excellent buffet/salad bar to start (lots of seafood items, latin dishes like mashed yuca, stuffed peppers...a great spread, and unique). Then there is a plate of appetizers, also with good variety. Finally you get a choice of entrees, which are excellent, but a bit small (don't be afraid to fill up on the buffet). Dessert (not included) was also good, mostly brazilian/latin choices. The wine list has a good selection in the $10-30 range.

I understand they have a lounge downstairs with music (there wasn't any when I went, but they had only been ope n a few days). I would welcome other opinions on this place and am curious how they rotate the selections. I would really hate to see them go under, this location (Ditmars and 35th street) seems to be cursed - the last place went under in a few months.
