What a great find! Exciting architecture and very cool environment in which to dine. We were three couples, warmly welcomed, and expertly served the entire evening. The waiter, who was from LA originally, explained everything perfectly and had a wonderful sense of humor and professionalism. What a joy to be in a place like this. Not stuffy or pretentious.....simply they welcomed us and exceeded our expectations. More restaurants need to follow their lead.
The food was extraordinary. I told the waiter that if a place like this existed in LA that people would be standing outside the door waiting to get in. There was an extraordinary plate that the entire table enjoyed and it was a combo meat and fish board which contained prosciutto, capicola salumi, house smoked salmon and trout....it was simply fantastic!
Some entrees we had....I had the evening special which was a 28 day dry aged filet which could be cut with a fork it was so tender, and prepared exactly to my liking. I had also started with some of the freshest tasting Washington oysters...only wished there were more than 6....they came with three different toppings, of which the granita was the best and gave the oysters some zing.
Someone else had the king salmon. Now this takes some explaining: the waiter cautioned us that the salmon is slow cooked at low temperature (140 degrees for 12 minutes) and as a result does not arrive at the table piping hot. It also does not looked fully cooked which did bother one member of our group. Despite the appearance, however, the taste was wonderful. Salmon tartare appetizer was also another home run score. The lamb dish was a bit different.....lamb belly wrapped around lamb sausage. It arrived quite pink - definitely too rare which did not appeal to the person who had it. If you order that dish, ask for it to be medium and not medium rare. The sausage tasted full of flavors, but it looked raw so heads up on that one.
Simply put....we all had a great evening with wonderful tasting flavorful food. I am only sorry that on a Friday night that the place wasn't full of diners -- it should have been because those who were not there missed a wonderful meal!
