This is a great loss for our city. This restaurant closed for good last Saturday night and they are changing their concept to an Argentenian Bistro, with steaks, fish and a little bit of everything.

Things started badly when we called ahead to say we'd be a few minutes late, only to find no record of our reservation. After grudging permission to come anyway, we found that our friends were already seated and we did have a reservation after all....More
