If you go to 382 Thames St., you will no longer find the Hourglass Brasserie! It has closed and been replaced by Christian's Grill at the same address. I have not been there yet; stay tuned, I will visit and review it this spring!

2nd Time eating at the Hourglass, just good food and service. The owner chef always takes the time to say hello and ask about the meal. I would recommend this restaurant and my favorite would naan taco and short ribs.
