I have a confession: The first time I dined here, I didn't like it and had no desire to return.
Why? I left feeling disappointed and even worse - still hungry. On that particular evening it was a vegan menu. I love many a vegan dish, but not an entire menu.

The chef is always different as there is a waiting list for people wanting to cook for this restaurant. On top of all that? It's BYOB!
