that bad huh.

 

The wine and food aren't bad.  They're good to very good.  The prices, though, are gruesome.  And the crowd is, to coin a phrase, hideous.

 

But I guess that comes with the neighborhood.

there is nothing in the neighborhood that doesn't have a hideous crowd if we're honest.

If all crowds are hideous, I'd say The Grill Room as it's quite a venue.

Although Bonner's guy, if patrician as all that, might (a) not appreciate The Grill Room's joke, and (b) prefer Aldo Sohm's wine to The Grill Room's cocktails.

Could someone please tell me what constitutes a “hideous” crowd?

You lawyers are adorable.

This crowd is more odd jackets and fleece vests than bad suits.

I give him enough credit on (a) and I had originally floated the grill room before asking here but got the impression (b) was a real issue.

I'm of the view that the grill room is the only choice in that nabe, as while expensive it's not that much of a premium over other places and that room.

I think drinks at empellon are like 2 bucks less and like that's hardly a choice.
