he is a much better writer than on camera personality.. I thought that was really interesting. 

 

Agreed, i really enjoyed his book and this article but the promo snippet of the show did not seem all that interesting.  Very good article, although the title does it disservice.

Going in a couple of weeks but seems tables are pretty available. Wasn't the chef at Vox in Reykjavik before Dill?

Quick meal picked that day because of convenient location and a lovely surprise (despite the cookis smoking outside) - something to be said for going without big expectations. Loved the Rohan duck, my favorite dish of the night, although the poppy seed seared foie was a close second. The quarter chicken was good but no different from other great chickens we had.  The artichoke salad was quite good. I'd love to go with a few more ppl to try some more of the whole birds and the terrine.  So refreshing to have well executed classic French food.

 

Very good bread and butter too. I wish the wine list had some options with a bit more age though. The staff in the dining room was very nice, the bartender must have been new though as he had no idea about their signature negroni  (including its existence, though printed on the menu, lol). 

 

I liked the room, comfortable and very grownup for a change. Those tables between the bar and dining room did look dreadful though.
