Here's what little I know...it's from the owners of Egan's (next door), and the focus was to be on seafood. Looks high-end in terms of decor. That's as much insight as I can offer, other than to say I didn't realize it was open yet! Are you sure it's open?

"Wow--this is a fancy restaurant! They keep bringing us more water and we didn't even ask for it!" --My 5.75 year-old niece, about Bread Bar

Been there about 4 times. Great bar service. The bartenders are right on everything and make a killer Halcyon cocktail with Hendricks and St Germain. They have a nice raw bar with about 5 selections of oysters, mostly east coast and kumos, king crab, dungeness, huge shrimp, etc. It is definitely geared toward seafood but they have other items. I've had the "fish and chips" probably the best I've ever had. artichoke and chantarelle soup was a special the other day and great. It is the same owner of Egan's(which I can't stand) but he did this place right. Mostly all white marble. You can order the whole menu at the bar. Crowd is 30-40ish. Everything I have had so far has been good to very good with the exception of the soft opening(expected)
