We ate here on Saturday night, and I'll upload the pix when I get home later tonight.

Great food and service but the room is a cocoon of sound and as much as I loved the experience, I'm not keen on returning. I don't like straining just to be able to hear my tablemate.

In the interim, here are some reviews you can read:

B and I prefer non-alcoholic drinks whenever possible, although there are times when I'll drink wine. This was ok - turmeric grapefruit soda with cardamom. Interesting on paper and nothing to write home about. On the other hand, it wasn't very sweet which I did appreciate.

Toast points, warn goat cheese with raspberries and plums

Way too much toast and it shows a stunning lack of imagination for $16.

Baked butter beans, feta, oregano pesto and breadcrumbs

Seared duck breast, fried wing, shelling beans, arugula, shishito peppers

Rotisserie chicken, smashed cucumbers, figs and croutons

Very good. The red sauce is romesco which provided just enough piquancy without being overbearing. I would not have thought of the combination of fruit and croutons, which worked to my surprise.

Grilled broccoli with anchovy, breadcrumbs and lemon

On the other hand, the vegetable side ($10) was not as successful. These spears were basically raw minimally cooked and I don't know about you but I am over "tender crisp". Would not order again.

Peach cobbler, candied pecans, corn ice cream

The dessert was probably the best thing we ate and forgave the sin of being enveloped in a cocoon of sound.
