Glowing report in the Record from Elisa Ung, with an interesting side mention of another upcoming restaurant
Bronzino dishes can often be simple to the point of boring, but the self-taught Chacon presents two flawless crisp-skinned filets balancing one on top of the other, daring you to dunk them in the lemony broth underneath.

The eggplant is rounded out with salty feta cheese and silan, a syrup made from dates ($12 for the appetizer).- See more at: http://www.northjers...h.V4D6n3Ba.dpuf
