My wife and I went in for a late supper Saturday night close to ten o'clock, pre-Built to Spill at the Farm, after the Grocery messed up our reservations. We had the foie, the beef tartar, the sweetbreads and the charcuterie. Everything was delicious. Nice to see an old school place still doing well.
Went on a Wensday evening. I have to say Im glad I did, though there were flaws. First of all the service was SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. And I mean Slow. As an App I had the Mussles. The broth was fantastic, but were slightly overcooked. My wife had the Scallop Gratinee, which is exactly the same as Rue de Jean, though the Haricot Verts were better. As my main I had the Shrimp and Crab, which was wonderful, but didnt live up to the "spicy" label. Also, the dish it was served in had a quarter sized chip in it. After our meal we had the Creme Brulee, safe I know but a good brulee is a weakness of mine. and it was good. Overall worth a trip, just expect to take some time over dinner, and longer waiting for the check
