That squid ring thing fell flat for me too, though my wife loved it. Not sure why. The only other thing I didn't like was that they pushed the plates on you so fast that we were out in under an hour (and totally stuffed). My favorite dish was a pork jowl, I think braised and then fried, with a barley risotto. We also had an excellent dessert, a panna cotta that had some crispy ginger things on it, though my memory of it is a few weeks old. I thought the food was very good, and for the price, unheard of.
This is a problem at small plate kitchens if your order happens to hit the order station in a slack period. The best kitchens triage the order into a civilized menu. Others send them out higgley piggley in a tsunami of soon forgotten plates.. Sad because some outstanding inspirations get lost in the train wreck.
