Booked for valentines eve. Atmosphere is great in here. For an app we had the scallops which were fantastic. For dinner, the Brick chicken is the best chicken ive ever had in my life. The skin on the chicken is so crispy and flavorful it is absolutely to die for. Also had the shortrib which was delcious, accented with roasted potatoes, gnochi and homeade crispy potato crisps. The combination of flavors and textures on that dish was pure artistry. For dessert was a banana bread pudding and brown butter ice cream, again this dish was flawless. Chef Lydia Shire has created a wonderful, elegant yet casual, foodie destination restaurant. Exceptional meal.
