What: Monday Night Dinner - Family Style
Comments: First time here the other night celebrating a friend's birthday. It was packed - glad we had reservations. The concept is this: every Monday night they serve a set menu, family style. We were a group of 5 and were promptly seated. There are two seatings - 6:30 and 8:30. We were at the early seating and had to remind ourselves to leave in time for the next seating - we were having such a great evening.
First course was a minestrone soup accompanied with garlic cheese toast (which was crispy, just slightly salty and wonderful). A beautiful pot was brought to the table and we ladled out steaming bowls of the hearty soup. Bonus? Seconds on demand! Even so, there was a little left that was wrapped up for leftovers.

Informal dining, great service (our waiter James kept things moving along with a great sense of humour), delicious food, good friends. Can't ask for too much more on a Monday night - great way to start the week.
