Williamsburgh Cafe - anyone try it lately? brunch?

I saw that there had been discussion on the board about the Williamsburgh Cafe this place a few months ago when it first opened, but despite some folks minor hesitation about it, I just came back from what I consider to be a fabulous experience. Amazing food and pretty great service.

I've lived here for about 6 years, and believe me - it's been a while since any place accomplished both those things. I had the seared tuna, and yes - it was a little pricey - but it was extremely good. My table also had the Caesar, which was almost perfect in my mind, although i'm not an anchovie fan, so I didn't mind the fact that it lacked them. We had one of the brick oven pizzas, and they easily accomodated our request to not have goat cheese and have mushroom instead - and I was pleasantly surprised when they used portobellos intead of basic mushrooms.

Dessert was amazing. I licked my plate clean.

I think my point is that this is a fine establishment, and places in this neck of the woods seem to need a little push and spreading of the good word. I'm also psyched that a "up-and-coming" chef has taken root here. I really hope they stick around and more people check it out. On that note, has anyone been there for brunch? How was it?
