Pricey French vodka cocktail served in juice glass. Followed by pricey liqueur (Drambuie) served in shot glass. Exaggerate I do not. Food sub par. 3 apps, 3 dinners, 2 were barely ok. Over Steven Starr. Wonder if he knows he's big in Philly, so can compromise product. Yet everyone still blindly flocks. Apps *Lamb on flatbread.... um, they were meatballs. It did not say "gross mystery meatballs" on menu. Horrible dish. *Roasted red pep dip/hummus on pita.... Bland, with a side of bland. * French onion dumplings.... Served in a mock crock....good carmelized onion flavor. Din Pad Thai ...ok flavor, similar to pad thai in Ctown (Xeulu on Race). Tuna ... not fresh Veg Salad ..... avgerage.

I've only been here once and that's because my former DJ employers were spinning there (thus granting me free entry and no line waiting... and there's no way I'd go back, even with such luxuries). Yay for overdressed and pretentious wannabe Hollywood-types everywhere! Yay for $20 Tequila Sunrises! Yay for the worst music requests ever! Yay for Keith David lookalikes flashing a light in your face every five minutes because your dress is more urban than everyone else! Yay! Puke! I think I'd rather watch an ESPN2 Friday night jelly donut eating contest between Rosie O'Donnell and Star Jones .

This place is run by the cool kids, who were so cool in school they didn't even know it. But, if you're lame they expect you to self regulate and see your way out (or don't bitch when you can't get in). The place is gorgeous and they have a fricken' antique slide. I hung out with the mistress of the slide *Shout Out to Carolina from Brazil* who actually carries a walky talky and makes sure there's a catcher on the other end before instructing you on the real way to go down a slide, then pushes your ass down. The DJ had some of the best transitions for the wackiest mash-ups, I had to remind myself that I was at a work function and to stop shakin' my ass and grinding up on the prospective donors I was talking to. Also, the specialty cocktails and food were much better than anticipated.
