    I'm sure the chefs will have a new card up their sleeve.

    /EMP joke.

    Oh man, that sucks! My one meal there is a great memory and I always assumed I would be back in the next year or two.

    can you imagine the landlord telling them they had to start doing room service out of a kitchen like that? It's pretty outrageous. One minute your plating an 8 course tasting for a four top, the next you're making a burger? WTF?

    I'd like to know the details about who the new owners are.

    Talk about looking at the world around you with blinders on. :crazy:

    I just cannot think what is going through their heads. They just drove out a destination restaurant so they can send rubbery scrambled eggs out as room service. I have to imagine Cyrus generated quite a nice bit of rent revenue for the property as well as drew patrons of the hotel itself.

    Apparently not. I mean, if it was such a money maker, why bother with messing with a good thing?

    People buy a business and do exactly this all the time. Illogical, I know, but all studies confirm this happens on a regular basis.

    haven't been inside that kitchen, but it's a pretty small hotel, no? that's not an uncommon arrangement. one of my favorite restaurants ever, citronelle in dc, does exactly that. that said, a couple of points: high-end restaurants tend not to be particularly profitable, with a few notable exceptions. and it could be that the new owners already had a tenant in mind? that's happened a time or two. all just speculation on my part, no knowledge (hey, this is the internet, right?)

    i think if you talk to most any of the top chefs (reall, not (tm) ), they'll tell y ou that michel richard is the most creative cook around. that, unfortunately, is different than running the best restaurant. still, his food is so far superior to most everything else that it makes up for whatever decor/service issues there might be.

    i remember looking at citronelle when i was at DC. it was commensurate with all the 3 michelin star restaurants in DC. like 200, 250 plus alcohol tax and tip

    has Michelin even done a guide for DC? If so, I can't even imagine what else might get three stars. Minibar before it closed MAYBE. Inn at Little Washington, 70 miles away. What else even comes close?

    Citronelle is in a class by itself.
