Why Isn't There More Talk of Corduroy?

Marty L. | Jun 8, 2004 03:59 PM

Just went to Corduroy for the first time. It was just great. Incredible malpeque oysters with just a touch of apple & shallot that really made the bivalves shine; an impeccably fresh (cold) pea soup; beautifully grilled scallops (*so* flavorful) w/garlic mashed potatoes & mache; scrumptious chocolate tart w/carmelized banana; a glass of perfect R Stuart "Big Fire" Pinot Noir, etc. Oh, and very reasonable prices, too. (Not cheap, but very fair.)

Very gracious and welcoming (and informative) service. True, the room is not the warmest in the world; but it's not as sterile as some have cracked it up to be, either. (And very conducive to comfortable conversation, too.)

Is Corduroy some sort of secret that I'm not supposed to be revealing? (There certainly were plenty of tables available at lunch today. Guess a lot of folks either haven't been clued in, or don't want to bother traipsing through the lobby of the Sheraton Four Points!)
