    Had a healthy pizza...sounds like an oxymoron, right? Pretty tasty for a pizza with a prebiotic multi-gran, and probiotic crust. http://nakedpizza.biz/

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Filet Mignon, cooked on a george forman grill, Annies white cheese shell macaroni and cheese, cooked, then baked on a cookie pan, and sprinkled with crunchy onion pieces, seared asparagus and mushrooms. Sauce was hummus + a little BBQ sauce. Wine was a very oaky Italian. Cheese was a Gruyere, iirc. If I had to guess, the TV was programmed to HGTV, a channel I hate but my GF loves. Passionately. House Hunter's, anyone?

    I ate at Otom (the sister restaurant) and was pleasantly surprised. What did you think of Moto, from what I've heard it's a bit heavy on the gimmick and light on good food/service.

    lucky you. ate there about 3 years back and did the tasting menu with wines.
    drunk as a monkey leaving the place. was it that pricey? i don't remember it being OTT.

    most expensive i have paid for myself was MOTO during the summer.
    just got a reservation for schwa in feb... can't wait!

    I ate there a year or two ago, and felt that it was a place that I was glad I experienced, but not anything I'd rush back to - kind of like checking something off of a list. I did the grand tour with the wine pairing and felt that overall the food was very good (except for one eggplant/zucchini dish that I really didn't care for), but it was certainly was focused on the gimmicks. As far as I remember, the service was what I'd expect for that level of restaurant.

    That's a tough reservation. But worth it.
    Dinner at Schwa will change your life.


    after last night we were actaully thinking that we would like to try schwa. never interested us before.

    ate at schwa a few years back, it was incredible. great night. that time i snagged a last minute reservation from someone on LTHforum that couldn't use it.

    this time i had to do it the old skool way - ringing every day for over two weeks!

    i think i would agree with that. some of the dishes were just great, but for me + my girlfriend, 10 course, pairing and a cocktail, it was around $540 i think. that's a lot of cash for me. service was OK, nothing to write home about.

    also i would say the wine portions were on the small size. we had the chicken wing dish which came with fin du monde beer, they just poured a small drop into the bottom of a glass. for that kind of cash i would hope to be rolled out in a drunken food stupor - although maybe that's my irish background coming through!

    My view is that you can charge me a lot, but just let me leave sated.

    I hate walking away from an expensive meal wanting to go and grab a burger or feeling like my wine glass was empty most of the time.
