I'll get to my write-up one of these days.

 

But for now let's just note that the dismissal of this fine restaurant as "fussy" is already starting.

It does sound a little fussy.  It takes 3 or 4 minutes to brew a pour over -- if they're also weighing the grounds etc in front of you, that's a long time to hang out with a waiter.

I certainly didn’t mean to suggest that you not do the menu in the dining room. Au contraire....

Wait. You can get the menu at the bar if you want, right?
