Right now everybody loves this place. I went once. Every course was excellent, but somehow the whole seemed less than the sum of the parts. I was in the “tasting menu” room. The “Bacon, Cheese, and Egg” course was first-rate. But for what I paid, I didn’t come away with the same feeling of satisfaction I get from CityZen. This is certainly a restaurant to be reckoned with, but I am not yet sure if I will go back.
