Anyone else been? It's a new Financial District Place, corner of Montgomery and Sacramento. My take is that the food is well-prepared and the ingredients seem high quality, but it's all seriously lacking in zip. No salt on the table only makes it worse. The "pulled lamb" is hardly pulled, it's more like sliced, but the fried fish is excellent except for the missing flavor in the crust.

If it's going to be a "soul food" type place, they are going to have to really "kick it up a notch." I'm no fan of Emeril, but they could use him to throw some salt, garlic, and red pepper into the mix.

Still, very nice atmosphere and a full bar.

568 Sacramento Street, San Francisco, CA 94111
