As the place start to get some very positive tweets (before the press started to chime in), we decided to give it a try before the inevitable (hipsters, long waits ...). Lets get some comments out of the way before I get to the chicken, the service was very friendly, low key, and fairly efficient. The lady runs the place, I think her name is Tobey, she make you feel like you could actually be friends. Smoked tuna was really nice, light yet rich. Manilla clams with lots of spring produce and chanterelle mushrooms in a light broth was perhaps a tad salty, but still tasted fresh. I just love having a glass or two of chilled Fino sherry to start a meal, especially with seafood, I don't understand why more restaurant don't stock them.
