Updates on Oswald and Avanti in Santa Cruz??

Carb Lover | Nov 8, 200502:42 PM

Has anyone eaten at Oswald in SC lately?? I haven't heard anything about them here since PolarBear's underwhelmed review from February (see link).

I don't think they have a website, so I can't get an idea of what they're currently doing. From what I understand, the style of food seems to be the most progressive of any other place in SC. I've heard some local foodies/chefs describe it as the best restaurant in SC.

I've been hesitant to try it after reading PB's review, but I do want to consider it for a special occasion and am feeling a little guilty about not funneling some of our big dining out dollars back into our community (since we tend to go to the Bay Area).

And has anyone eaten at Avanti since Brian Curry left and the new chef (Ben Sims, I think) took over? Thanks for any info.
