    Have you eaten there since Hopson took over? Opinion? I thought Picholine was great, but I ate there after he had already left. My parents got engaged at his other stint, One if By Land.

    I haven't been there in a very long time. I've heard a lot of negative things, but then again when Bouloud was there one heard negative things too, which makes me think some of the hate is bullshit.

    Yeah. Some of the stuff I've seen on yelp looks rather sad. Of course, I can't taste it, so I don't really know for sure. It certainly doesn't look like very exciting food. But, then again, I don't think that's what Le Cirque's patrons are really going there for.

    Yeah, there are just too many other places to go to be honest.

    Henry Kissinger and Nancy Reagan.

    I think basically most of Le Cirque's lifetime diners are finally dying off, and their offspring are choosing to eat elsewhere. I could see it closing down within the decade. Not sure how the one in Vegas is doing.

    where'd you get a whole monkfish tail?
    you should try slow grilling the entire thing if you can get another one. the bras thing looks good though.

    I buy all my fish early in the morning at a distributor right by the water. I basically get all of my fish whole now. The selection is incredible, and I pay wholesale for everything. It's also a lot fresher than what you would find at a regular fish market.

    I get the fish at Pagano's on Water Street in Norwalk. But I don't live in Norwalk, and I'd probably rather not share where I do.
