We liked this meal, but, while solid, it was nothing particularly special. A four-course meal for $79 was a decent deal, though.

First Course A: Oysters, Bloody Mary, mignonette.

First Course B: Tuna tartare, wild arugula, quail egg, pine nuts, Castelvetrano olives.

Great space. Great service. Good food. Just not great food.


  1. The red velvet dessert looks good!

  2. too bad it was just solid. the bear will pay out the nose for amazing seafood. bears love salmon, after all.

  3. i'm pretty sure your "not great food" probably = "fantastic food" for me.
