This place seems to have a lot of potential. We went for brunch a few weeks ago and it was quite delicious-- got the baked eggs and the breakfast sandwich on baguette. The bacon was fabulous. The grapefruit juice with cayenne was also amazing. We went again for dinner last night. Almost every dish disappointed us. The arugula salad had too much dressing, and the dressing was too strongly flavored with mustard. The mussels' sauce tasted too strongly of wine, and it overpowered the other flavors. The chicken was nicely flavored but too dry. The sweet corn with green peppercorns was done nicely though. Heard other diners nearby rave about the short rib and the haricot vert- maybe we just ordered the wrong thing? The atmosphere was nice though, candlelit with a nice playlist. Hoping the dinner improves, because we were quite unimpressed.
