PX This presents THE F&F REVIEW
Hey, sorry we couldn’t make it to "Friends&Family," we were out of town/ had to work/ not invited. We’re really glad we finally managed to come by, though— it’s so nice to see you!
What’s that? You would still like us to take the time to fill out the F&F survey, because you’d love to take advantage of all our vast experience, knowledge, insight, and expertise as long as we’re already here? Because you invited 75 people to F&F, and afterward all you got was 41 "Congrats[es]!" 22 "Awesome[s]!" 3 "Ciao[s]!" and 9 "Best of luck[s]!" ?
Of course, we’d be honored. Oh ha, yesss, we’ll be honest— brutally honest even, ha ha! After all, that’s what friends & family are for!
No no please, don’t send anything more, we’re stuffed, we can’t breathe, you’ll have to roll us out of here, ha ha ha… !
What was your first impression?
Oh man, that light. Try this trick:
Stare at the light for fifteen seconds. Now squeeze your eyes shut and turn your head away from the light for five seconds. Now open them quickly. Did you see Jesus?
[Ha ha ha ahaa, I didn’t write that, I stole it from *rollerfink*]
No but seriously though, I think I got a suntan sitting at that bar.
Please rate the Bar:
Don’t go into the light, Carrie Anne! Sorry, couldn’t resist.
And the bartender is quite the serious young man. He’s very proficient, though.
Please rate the drinks/ cocktails/ wine:
The cocktails are very good, nice ingredients. But kinda expensive. The wine list is excellent, especially for an Asian restaurant, but again, don’t exactly expect to find any bargains here.
Please rate the Dining Room:
It’s simple, could be warmer. But it’s pretty plush. Looks kinda Californian actually.
Please rate the BOH:
Exceptional. If you’re a foodie, this is the place for you all right.
How was the staff?
Good. Maybe a wee tense. But that could just be the general aura.
What did you eat?/ How was the food?
Everything on the menu, I am not even kidding : The menu essentially consists of a three-course tasting and a five-course tasting. There were four of us, we opted for the fiver, there were four choices for each course offered… yada yada, we ate the whole menu. And it was very good, if you’re into that sort of thing. Personally I’m not, but I totally get the appeal. It was all very fancy and creative and artistic. I liked the amuse bouche and the "rice’" course best, I’m just sayin.
What did you like?
It’s always nice to try something new and different. I even gave the superloo a whirl. And ehee heee now I want one.
(Oh, and that Chambolle Musigny was pretty wonderful.)
What did you dislike?
Uh, alls I’m a say is "hire a decorator to come in here quick, cuz… damn."
What was your last impression?
Aww, the other superloo isn’t working right. Boo.
Would you come back?
Well, I’m not sure I would, but my very discerning pals are already planning their return with other friends of theirs. So, it’s not for all of the people all of the time. Like that.
Thank you, and hope to see you soon!
Thank you, it was a pleasure.
[P.S. The impending iPad menus in the dining room to match the currently single one at the bar? Please don’t.]
