We had dinner with friends. By now we know the best plan is to opt for the $55/person “fancy” option, and let the restaurant decide on our dinner choices. (They are very careful to find out dietary preferences first.). Everything was fabulous, from the specialty cocktails to the killer red Barbara by the glass, to the splendiferous array of dishes, to the wonderful dessert. This dinner was a birthday present for one of the guests, and the restaurant also took care to leave birthday wishes at his plate and bring him a special dessert. We all walked out in a happy foodie daze. Definitely make reservations at this fabulous place, well in advance.

We enjoyed a fabulous experience last night at Staple & Fancy. There were dishes with ingredients such as lamb cheeks, ravioli with foie gras, appetizers included a kale salad with anchovy, a beet salad with apples, yogurt and nut granola. There was a nice selection of wines, too. The best part for us, being four vegetarians/pescatarians, was that many of the items could be customized to eliminate meat. The whole fish was delicious, for example. We plan on coming back.

Went there after a busy day and was not disappointed. Service was spot on and food was well prepared, delivered on time and delicious! Only issue was with the drinks and it's just a personal thing. I hate it when pours come in a mini carafe to show you you're getting the "correct" amount. IMO, if you're going to do that, fill it to the top to let the customer know their getting a little more than normal!

The smell coming from this restaurant as we walked by stopped us and we went in. Very romantic restaurant. We sat at the bar and noticed that they had a grill.

As we had some food at another place down the street, we decided to try some of their wines. The recommendation from the bar tender was for a Sicilian which did not disappoint. In fact, we tried to find the bottle the next day.

We saw how they grilled a complete fish and decided to go in for the grilled octopus. I love this dish but many restaurants don't know how to do it properly.

They cooked it perfectly and served it with a nice creamy sauce with herbs, beans etc.

Great place, enjoyed it and will come back to try the full menu.
