For Holly Moore - they began the meal with a complimentary popover. Couldn't but help think of you...
Good restaurant, though I really do not like the space on Broad Street, and hope it makes it.

But the meal was late and very slow. We had 8:30 reservations, were seated at 9:00 and courses appeared very slowly. The staff and chef were very apologetic, serving additional wine and, despite our protests, comping the whole meal.
After the kinks are worked out, we will enthusiastically go back.

I have to say, if a server told me the soup was "life-changing" I would have to slap them after I got up off the floor from laughing. Sounds like the servers are all about talking the over-exaggerated talk, but not walking the walk when it comes to simple service issues. Surprising that no one recognized Mr. Laban when he arrived and let him sit there for half an hour with no menus. Yikes!
Everyone I know that has eaten there has had high praise for the food, but definitely agreed that the service wasn't living up to the high standards set by the food. I will reserve judgement until I've had a chance to go myself, but certainly the limited statistical sample of folks in my world are all in agreement. For what that's worth...

The food is innovative yet approachable and very well executed. The early service issues seem to be addressed. Wine list has some rare finds.
Great restaurant which I would certainly recommend to friends.
