I was there on Thursday and to clarify, in case any are confused by the previous hieroglyphic posts, this is an excellent food and drink destination at a genuinely sympatique cafe. The food is tapas-like. I ate fantastic grilled cheese sandwich (grilled bread, gruyere cheese, caramalized onions, with homeade ketchup on the side -- fantastic), and my friend had a plateau of sliced gianbonetto (cured pork) served with hummous, roasted tomato, olives, and delicious caponata. This was all splendid with a glass of DeLoach Zinfandel, reasonably priced. I didn't partake of the oysters, but I saw some other excellent food options, including an all vegatable plate with hunk of goat cheese, and pate with cornichons. All of this in a non-smoking atmosphere, great music and vibe. Why do I feel like this is going to be very very popular?

Any news on whether or not this has become a regular night?

yes and no.

it is a regular night in that it si open late every thursday. But special events with a guest chef are irregular and held once a month or so. I will try to find out when the next "special" event will be held.
