  1. My daughter and her friends went on Saturday before her high school prom. I would definitely understand why a restaurant would be hesitant to to seat a large (12 people) group of teenagers on a busy night. They had no problem making a reservation. The group had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. They were very complimentary about their server. All-in-all they had a great experience and a memorable night.

I am glad to say that we had a wonderful meal and dining experience and we will happily move Cityzen into our regular rotation. We were presented with two amuses, the first a mushroom fritter on a mushroom sauce (I could have
  5. Been enjoying the forum for quite a while now and finally decided to join in. My wife and I get out to eat (without kids) 2-3 times a month. Current favorites include Komi, Palena, Bistro Bis and Cityzen. Still in mourning over Maestro and Scott Bryan (when he was at 2941). Unless I have overlooked the topic, I'm surprised that no one has posted regarding Vincent's wine tastings at the Tyson's Ritz. We went to our first one last month and thought it was wonderful. Vincent was his usual charming self, the wines were great, and we were completely surprised by the tastes that chef Jeff Skl
